Seems we don't have rhel7 builds for dracut-modules-growroot and rhel-guest-image-7 never use dracut-modules-growroot before.

We could remove dracut-modules-growroot from our rhel-guest-image-6 builds, i tried that cloud-utils-growpart could take over everything.
Comment 2 Ryan Barry 2016-02-29 13:16:36 EST
cloud-utils-growpart does not expand the root filesystem on its own on EL6.

Dropping this package was tested, and prevents the filesystem from resizing correctly.
