This is no bug in the cups packages.
It is intentionally and it prevents you from installing
a non-working mix-up of non-matching cups packages.

From the cups RPM spec file:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
# Require the exact matching version-release of the cups-libs
# sub-package because non-matching CUPS libraries may let
# CUPS software crash (e.g. segfault) because all CUPS software
# is built from the one same CUPS source tar ball so that
# there are CUPS-internal dependencies via CUPS private API calls
# (which do not happen for third-party software which uses only
# the CUPS public API).
# The exact matching version-release of the cups-libs sub-package
# is available on the same package repository where the cups package is
# because all are built simulaneously from the same cups source package
# and all required packages are provided on the same repository:
Requires: cups-libs = %{version}-%{release}
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

If in your particular case you have a cups-version-release package
without the matching cups-libs-version-release package available
something else is wrong (perhaps in your repositories).
