Are they different versions, or from different sources?

In YaST2, you can see something similar if you have two repositories carry the same package, with different filenames. Hovering over it displays the rpm filename. For example, one might be from the packman site and contain .ps. in it's name.

packages are same version. How do you check what repository they belong to in CentOS? Is there a way to only display one version of package, even if you added multiple repository, eg centos and fedora repository?
