I'm not sure what you're saying here.  When I was shipping Fedora
pre-installs, I used kickstart for everything.  Part of the kickstart's
%post scripts was a call to yum to update against a local mirror that I
synced each night.  Since each system was built/install to order, the
system would get updates as of the day before or a couple days before it
ships to the customer.
