I'm not a RHEL developer but I was asked to sanity check some things in RHEL6
and thoses packages were definitely built in the Red Hat koji instance.
There are definitely some differences from running mock locally and running
mock inside of koji, though.  For instance, some zsh rebuild issues outside
of koji were reported here::


and I recently closed a Fedora zsh FTBFS where the package failed
a different self-test in mock-locally but works in mock-in-koji.
