No.á My workflow is, yum update (installing new kernel).á No reboot, cd into SPEC directory, rpmbuild -bb kmod.nvidia.spec, cd into RPMS/x86_64 (or i686 if that is your arch) and yum localinstall kmod-...., then reboot.

I managed to build the srpm's without much issue (and without changing anything). áI did have issues installing the resulting rpm's but I solved that by removing the old nvidia software.

My only remaining problem is when new kernels are released in updates. áI have to boot the new kernel to runlevel 3 and rebuild the kmod again. áBut Im sure there is a much better way to do that :)
