Is there any reason that iproute2 for kernel 4.15 is used on fedora 28 (4.16 kernel)

Who is best to contact to get this updated?

Likely there are not that many changes in iproute2 versions that it would be necessary to update the package just because there is a new kernel available. Especially updates to the kernel are usually expected to be very backwards-compatible, so it should be just fine to use updated kernel in combination with a bit older iproute2.

If you need a new feature that became available in iproute2 4.16, you can go to the bugzilla and file a new bug for Fedora. Select iproute as the package name and otherwise fill the form. In the description field, make sure to describe how 4.16 or newer will make the system better.
