I haven't heard this and it might be a misinterpretation of other things.

skvidal and I are working on a builder for third party add on repositories
for Fedora.  That builder would be separate from koji and would, indeed use
a vm for building.  You might want to talk to mbonnet if there's plans on
adding vm capability to koji.  (I don't think there is as that was one of
the reasons we decided we should be creating a different build system).
