One needs to start trouble-shooting somewhere. Yum output does not show

A simple "rpm -q libmudflap-devel ; yum list libmudflap-devel" can be very
helpful, considering that the "Yum update gcc" output actually showed the
new gcc (and knowing that libmudflap is built from the same src.rpm).

Conspiracy theories are not helpful. There have been similarily "weird"
packages in the Fedora package collection before, too.
