It doesn't.
Anaconda (both in RHEL and Fedora) does clubber the existing grub.conf
during the installation.

But if you keep a copy of the previous grub.conf and merge with the
newly installed on, it should work just fine.

Updates only add/remove exact kernel versions and files (and the default
option). They do not modify other entries.
