[root@spock root]# cat /etc/man.config |grep "/usr/share" 
MANPATH /usr/share/man 
MANPATH_MAP     /bin                    /usr/share/man 
MANPATH_MAP     /sbin                   /usr/share/man 
MANPATH_MAP     /usr/bin                /usr/share/man 
MANPATH_MAP     /usr/sbin               /usr/share/man 
MANPATH_MAP     /usr/bin/mh             /usr/share/man 
It's already there. 
rpm does not (and should not) overwrite config files you've changed, though. 
By any chance, did you modify your man.config on 6.x, then update to 7.x?
