RHEL6.7 provides:

vrempet@li-lc-1578 ~
$ rpm -q logrotate

The used 'su' command is only introduced in 3.8.0 of logrotate:

3.7.9 -> 3.8.0
        - added "dateyesterday" option (see man page)
        - fixed crash when config file had exactly 4096*N bytes
        - added WITH_ACL make option to link against -lacl and preserve ACLs
          during rotation
        - added "su" option to define user/group for rotation. Logrotate now
          skips directories which are world writable or writable by group
          which is not "root" unless "su" directive is used.
        - fixed CVE-2011-1098: race condition by creation of new files
        - fixed possible shell injection when using "shred" directive (CVE-2011-1154)
        - fixed escaping of file names within 'write state' action (CVE-2011-1155)
        - better 'size' directive description
        - fixed possible buffer-overflow when reading config files
        - NetBSD/FreeBSD compilation fixes
        - Solaris compilation fixes
