Well, they're available in CentOS too - the location is the same as on Fedora.
It's actually quite handy to look at the various xmexample files for details
of the syntax and the options available.  Even though I work on Xen all the
time, I still do it occasionally when trying out new features.

Thanks will look up.

Anyhow, possibly the difference is that before you were using a
CentOS-customised Xen kernel which had certain preset defaults compiled in.
virt-manager is primarily a RHEL / CentOS / Fedora tool, so perhaps it
assumes these defaults and doesn't create entries for them?

Since you're using 3rd party (i.e. XenSource) provided kernels, they probably
provide different defaults which therefore need overriding with those

No i am not using xensource kernel. I have compiled the kernel as well. I downloaded and compiled xen 3.1.1, with kernel 2.6.18.
