SELinux & Koji question

This command fails:

+ chcon system_u:object_r:tmp_t:s0 tmp
chcon: failed to change context of 'tmp' to 'system_u:object_r:tmp_t:s0': Operation not permitted

when run on Koji.  However it works fine when run on a Fedora 18
machine, with SELinux enforcing.

Does Koji have SELinux enforcing?  Why is labelling not allowed when
it works on a local machine?
