In this document (TROUBLESHOOTING SECTION) it refers to the config file for excluded rules in the wrong directory.
--------------- quote -----------
The [id “....”] is what we are looking for, to add to the excluded rules. Simply modify the
/etc/httpd/conf/mod_security_excluded_rules.conf file and add the new rule between statements like below:....
------------ end quote ----------

should be: (conf.d not conf)

/etc/httpd/conf.d/mod_security_excluded_rules.conf

took me a while to find why it would not work!

This document was originally written for Centos 5.x varieties, where there is no conf.d default directory. While with newer versions of Centos I would agree with your placement, in either can see the conf directory works just fine as well, although I do understand the differences.
