I found the culprit as I checked the packages and the Gnome option
had been turned off. As I selected Gnome desktop for installation, the
problem disappeared.

Of course I now got the 'Gnome Settings' into the menu.

I guess I just had installed KDE and not Gnome.

Perhaps Red Hat should protest if the needed Gnome file is not
installed.
