/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ while other parts can be found in /usr/sbin/

Hello Jeff,
modifying package-installed "binaries" or "libraries" on production system is really bad idea. You may easily end up with system broken in numerous ways. Proper way is to get CentOS downstream git clone [1] add the desired patches and build your own package.
