You are confusing different distributions.  Netty provides a source
distribution which does include a NOTICE file.  Netty also provides binary
(jar) distributions.  These do not include a NOTICE file.

Just as the NOTICE file is different in the source and binary distributions
of Drill, so is there a difference in the source and binary distributions
of Netty.  The Drill project draws this distinction deliberately and I can
only presume the Netty project does this same.  If you think that the Netty
developers are constructing their different distributions incorrectly, you
should probably take that up with them.

Drill includes the binary distribution, not the source.  Drill faithfully
propagates all NOTICE files from that binary distribution (i.e. none).

I am not sure why you insist on confusing these two very separate things,
but you do seem to quite persistent in doing so.
