Imported 2 critical KB's manually in WSUS, its not showing in SCCM 2007 after synchronization

I have manually updated two hotfixes, KB2817626 and KB2817624 in WSUS, import was successful.  After SCCM synchronization occurred, the patches are still now showing up in SCCM 2007.  In WSUS, it says

"This update is superseded by another update.  Before you decline any superseded update, we recommend that you verify it is no longer needed by any computers.   To do so, approve the superseding update first."

The hotfixes are superseded with Office 2013 SP1, but we do not want to install that SP, we only want to install those hotfixes only.

I appreciate any help with this issue.

Here is what Microsoft says - I believe you can still decline the superseding but do consider to move forward. There is a WSUS Server Cleanup Wizard for bulk decline

"WSUS does not automatically decline superseded updates, and it is recommended that you do not assume that superseded updates should be declined in favor of the new, superseding update. Before declining a superseded update, make sure that it is no longer needed by any of your client computers.

The following are examples of scenarios in which you might need to install a superseded update:

" If a superseding update supports only newer versions of an operating system, and some of your client computers run earlier versions of the operating system. " If a superseding update has more restricted applicability than the update it supersedes, which would make it inappropriate for some client computers."
There is a WUA script which can be used to force updates on client systems.
