[Yum] How to use /etc/yum/vars/* ?

In the man page for yum.conf there is a note that reads..
"As of 3.2.28, any file in /etc/yum/vars is turned into a variable named
after the filename (or overrides any of the above variables)."
How do I use this? I'm guessing that maybe I make a file called
/etc/yum/vars/FOOBAR and have it output a string to stdout
and then inside yum.conf I can use a macro called $FOOBAR
Is this documented any place other then what I quoted above?
If I figure this out I'll be happy to submit a man page patch.
