>From the 6.1 Technical Notes[0]:


   This update extends yum functionality by adding yum-cron
   package. It provides automatic background system updates with no
   user intervention and replaces the outdated yum-updatesd package.

There is no yum-updatesd package in CentOS 6, following upstream.
