Brian certainly did mean "yum search" in the above question and not the
"rpm -qf" command. Though I can't really answer that. On FC2 I get

$ yum search snmp
[ ... ]
Looking in installed packages for a providing package
[ ... ]
Installed package: net-snmp-utils.i386 0:5.1.1-2 matches with
4 results returned

Maybe "yum provides snmpwalk" would be better?
