yep , grubby does install with his configuration .
vi /sbin/new-kernel-pkg
line 181
if [ -n "$banner" ]; then
        title="$banner ($version)"
    elif [ -f /etc/os-release ]; then
        . /etc/os-release
        title="$NAME ($version) $VERSION"
    elif [ -f /etc/redhat-release ]; then
    title="$(sed 's/ release.*$//' < /etc/redhat-release) ($version)"
    title="Red Hat Linux ($version)"

I do know how set banner and I assume that is not set 
so next else if 
. /etc/os-release
you may change
title="$NAME ($version) $VERSION"  
title="$NAME ($version)"
and you have your problem solved .

bottom line, this should be reported on bugzilla as an RFE , asking to
add to grubby a custom name ...
