AFAIK they are.

Note that in some components the LICENSE and NOTICE files for the
source code differ from those of the resulting binaries because of
embedded dependencies like Rhino. In such cases Sling typically
includes separate LICENSE and NOTICE files in
src/main/resources/META-INF (or a similar location) for inclusion in
the resulting binary artifact.

Agreed, though I think it's OK if Sling fixes this for their next
release. Do you prefer that this release be redone to fix this?
