I assume to distinguish Red Hat-blessed kernels from home-built kernels.
There's a comment in the spec file indicating something along those
lines:

	#
	# Polite request for people who spin their own kernel rpms:
	# please modify the "release" field in a way that identifies
	# that the kernel isn't the stock distribution kernel, for example by
	# adding some text to the end of the version number.
	#
	[...]
	%define rhbsys  %([ -r /etc/beehive-root ] && echo  || echo .`whoami`)
	%define release %(R="$Revision: 1.339 $"; RR="${R##: }"; echo ${RR%%?})%{rhbsys}
