Well, I'm really on the fence in regard with this fix. PGDG packages are not
hotfixes :/

In the past, PGDG repo was requiring to exclude some distro packages to work
correctly. Maybe the best fix for RHEL 8 is to require to disable the
postgresql module ?

Moreover, I believe the best plan is in fact to provide modules from the pgdg
repo itself. But this is a total different story, much bigger project

normal, they are probably ignoring this parameter as it is related to modules.
EL 6 and 7 are not aware of modules.
