What is the difference between a distribution included package and a yum available package?

A small prequel: In Fedora 18, tried to recover partitions on a USB-stick with gparted (0.14.1), (Device-attempt data rescue) gparted spawns me this error: Command gpart was not found This feature uses gpart. Please install gpart and try again. So I tried installing gpart, but it appears not available:

[root@cal-26 ~]# yum provides gpart
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
No Matches found
[root@cal-26 ~]# yum search all gpart
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
=============================================================== Matched: gpart ===============================================================
gparted.x86_64 : Gnome Partition Editor
svgpart.x86_64 : SVG KPart
pgp-tools.x86_64 : Collection of several utilities related to OpenPGP
[root@cal-26 ~]#

Nevertheless the package should be available http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=1027

Seeing the above link I would have expected to be available in the standard repo for fedora, defined in

/etc/yum.repos.de

by mirrorlist=https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=fedora-$releasever&arch=$basearch

Seems not the case?
