No, I looked.  Here's a snippet from wine.spec hinting at it:
# x86-32 parts
%ifarch %{ix86} x86_64
%if 0%{?fedora} || 0%{?rhel} <= 6
Requires:       wine-core(x86-32) = %{version}-%{release}
Requires:       wine-capi(x86-32) = %{version}-%{release}
Requires:       wine-cms(x86-32) = %{version}-%{release}
Requires:       wine-ldap(x86-32) = %{version}-%{release}
Requires:       wine-twain(x86-32) = %{version}-%{release}
Requires:       wine-pulseaudio(x86-32) = %{version}-%{release}

Note, only included if rhel is <=6

Then I tried to tell you why (that rhel7 has no i686 edition and epel7 has 
no i686 buildroot), but you didn't believe me.  Suit yourself.
