What is the setting for 'cleanup unused requirements is active by default' in yumex.conf?

I am waiting for https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1161913 affecting F21 to be resolved. However, I was wondering if the yumex.conf file could be manually altered to fix this in the meantime.

The current contents is as follows:

[yumex]
autorefresh = 1
recentdays = 14
proxy =
exclude =
debug = 0
color_install = darkgreen
color_update = red
color_normal = black
color_obsolete = blue
plugins = 1
yumdebuglevel = 2
win_height = 753
win_width = 1126
remove_requirements = 1

My understanding is that remove_requirements = 1 should send the cleanup obsoletes command to yum. If so it is being ignored.

Does yumex still use yum or is it dnf now? Maybe that is where the problem lies. Either way if anyone has any knowledge of this please enlighten me if anything can be done.
