Thanks for report.
Looks like Leapp doesn't support changing efi dirs because is developed just for Red Hat.
We have to develop a new actor for this.
BTW could you also check CentOS 7 -> CentOS Stream 8 update in your environment?

Yes i know leapp.
Before making a video on my youtube channel i made a snapshot of the VM in CentOS 7.
So i make the test on the SAME VM. (i didn't destroyed it)

After upgrading from CentOS 7 to CentOS 8 Stream : All is okay because efi is in centos folder in the EFI partition

ELevate now supports upgrading in UEFI mode and correctly updates boot entry
