Some of these distributions ship with SELinux turned off, or require a different kernel, or even a kernel re-compilation. SELinux policies, rules and behaviours should be identical across distributions, but a wide variety of userspace tools for managing policies and configuration do exist across multiple distributions. I recommend reading the associated web pages and documentation for each distribution.
