Usually by setting exclude=kernel* in yum.conf prevents kernel updates via yum command like "yum upgrade".
On a ULN yum mirror server, the script uln-yum-mirror will also use the same yum.conf file by default. So if any exclude settings in yum.conf, the script will not download excluded packages. Which is not expected in a normal yum mirror server, because usually customer expected a yum mirror server to serve everything packages in its ULN channels.
