Where does /etc/pam.d/login come from and where can I tell when it changed between distro versions

I think the first question will enable me to figure out the second question.

How can I determine when /etc/pam.d/login and /etc/pam.d/sshd changed from RHEL/CentOS 6.9 and RHEL/CentOS 7.9?

Maybe worded different. What is changing/adding/modifying /etc/pam.conf into its current on system state in RHEL/CentOS distributions.

I see however it isn't consistent with what is in those files with the version that is in the release of RHEL/CentOS 6.9 /etc/pam.d/ folder so it appears something else is modifying it (or seems to be). sshd doesn't even appear to be in the pam.conf file I linked either.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
