Yes, this happens when doing yum update. However, sticking with older 6.x versions seems deprecated as per the following readme snippet of centos, and therefore the question still goes, if lustre 2.5.3 (only client) is bound to centos 6.5 explicitly or if centos 6.y with y>=5 will be good as well?
#####This directory (and version of CentOS) is deprecated.  For normal users,
you should use /6/ and not /6.5/ in your path. Please see this FAQ
concerning the CentOS release scheme:


If you know what you are doing, and absolutely want to remain at the 6.5
level, go to http://vault.centos.org/ for packages. 

Please keep in mind that 6.0, 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4 and 6.5 no longer gets any updates, nor
any security fix's.

Best regards.

 I think this happens when you do a default upgrade. To prevent it I 
modified the files in /etc/yum.repos to explicitly point to "6.5". 
Originally they are linked to "6" (or a variable with that value).
