This is about the implementation while I am talking about the workflow.
Please have a look at one of Linus' rants about centralized systems where he typically complains about the inconvenience of branching *and merging* in such systems.
Finding a patch's kernel version with git

If you mean that the common workflow in centralized systems does not allow long lived branches, and certainly not across releases, well I suppose I can accept that, but it is more a matter of discipline than central vs. distributed. Basically it means keeping non-mergeable feature branches out of the repository, or always rebasing them after a new release, so that branch rev ids are contained strictly between two releases. Neither option seems pleasant.
