Did the architects of Khufu's pyramid know about the shape of the Earth?

Geocentric latitude is the angular distance between a point on the Earth's surface and the equator, using the center of the Earth as the vertex. It differs from geodetic latitude in that it accounts for the ellipsoidal shape of the Earth rather than considering it as a perfect sphere. Compare geodetic latitude.

Why hasn't anybody notice this till now? Probably because people are accustomed to working with geodetic latitude and not geocentric latitude.
