On my system, rpm -qa|grep kernel shows:

But /boot contains:

backup_mbr initrd symvers-3.7.10-1.11-desktop.gz
boot initrd-3.7.10-1.11-desktop
sysctl.conf-3.7.10-1.11-desktop boot.readme
lost+found System.map-3.7.10-1.11-desktop
config-3.7.10-1.11-desktop message vmlinux-3.7.10-1.11-desktop.gz
grub symtypes-3.7.10-1.11-default.gz
vmlinuz grub2 symtypes-3.7.10-1.11-desktop.gz
vmlinuz-3.7.10-1.11-desktop grub2-efi
symtypes-3.7.10-1.11-pae.gz

So you have 3.7.10-1.4.1 and 3.7.10-1.11.1 installed. However, /boot
only has 3.7.10-1.11. It means that you have many megabytes of
3.7.10-1.4.1 still lying around which you should remove with rpm. Or
leave it to system services to delete it on next update.

The entire kernel is not in /boot, you know that.
