I have not tried it yet but I looked at it quick a while ago. It is the pure
upstream version and they have set apparmor to be builtin but not enabled by
default. I do mean to look at it more I just haven't had time yet.

You need to set security=apparmor on your grub kernel line.

It would be really good if we could update our userspace rpm packaging bits
so that it would be easier/better to setup package for RH systems. I don't
think this has been looked at for years. The suse RPMs would be a good starting
point but I expect there will be some tweaking of them for RH.
