If that would be the case, replacing it with "functionally compatible" doesn't improve anything as it also applies only to the "core". So it does not explain the change.
Also the effort to rebuild CentOS core with the goal to make it as compatible as possible to RHEL, is a wasted effort if only the builds would be made identical to RHEL, rather than a reverse engineered effort with different tools, a different process and a different environment.
