Yes, that's what I see here.

And yellow "version-release doesn't match enabled repos".

If I kill /var/lib/yumdb/*, "yum list installed" loses its history
and no longer knows from which repo a package was installed. Then it uses
yellow for all packages that don't match the cached metadata of the
enabled repos.

It uses red for the installed "mobile-broadband-provider-info" package
because that's a new package from updates-testing and not available
in the F11 "fedora" or "updates" repos. If I enable updates-testing
for the "list installed" query, the package name is not printed in red
anymore as now it is found in the enabled repos' metadata.
