The option to enable/disable this feature was implemented recently
in upstream [1].  In order to get it into CentOS/RHEL you would have
to create a BUG for it.

As a workaround you can uninstall python-libguestfs package which is
used by virt-manager to run the introspection.  If that package is
missing importing guestfs in the python code fails and the feature
is disabled.
