That's because there apparently are no kmod packages for your kernel
version. If you want a kmod-style RPM, you can build one yourself by
downloading the SRPM and running something like:

rpmbuild --rebuild -bb --define 'build_userspace 0' \
	--define 'build_modules 1' openafs-1.6.0-1.src.rpm

Or you can use DKMS, as mentioned on that page right below the step that
mentions the kmod RPMs.
