I don't think this step should be necessary?

Hmm...would need to drill down into this one; I think we should be
enabling the extras repo but it might depend on your subscription state.

Just editing .repo files.  I honestly never used yum-config-manager, but
I definitely run into people who have.  It also seems to have been sort
of dropped with the dnf transition too?    The thing that *does* trip
everything in the rpm-ostree model up is having RPMs that themselves
contain .repo files; the canonical example is epel-release.  Personally I just
rpm2cpio it or use Ansible to inject the GPG key and repo file, but down
the line I'd like to streamline things for the "RPMs that just have files in /etc"
