What about software installed on the clients but not on the server? Yum
on the server won't pull down any updates (because the software to be
updated is not installed on the server), so the clients won't see any
updates.

I should have thought that this is especially true for Extras.

(I should also have thought that you might have to relabel
/var/cache/yum/undates-released and descendants periodically, or SELinux
will stop httpd from accessing those files. But that's just a guess.)

Hope this helps,

James.
