Not necessarily. It is usually enough to add a *-release file, without modifying fedora-release. Even if you modify some packages, you can easily override Fedora's versions e.g. by using Epochs.

One could add other *-release RPMs, yeah. Those could just install the RPM GPG keys and .repo files -and be done with it. There'd be rebranding involved but it wouldn't force one to not use the Fedora repositories on such a system.

Having to provide capability 'system-release', possibly with a higher nevra, is what I'd call "replacing the fedora-release package" as opposed to just replacing 'fedora-logos', which would mean a challenge for the users attempting rebranding/debranding.

Kind regards,
