After more digging, I think the issue is that shouldn't have an
Apache header.  It comes from external projects under Modified BSD.  Then I
think it would make sense to have the Adobe/BSD license in the LICENSE file?

After more digging, I think this is here because these are binary files
that, while under Apache license, are not sourced from a.o, so technically,
third-party.  It isn't clear from here [5] that if it is under Apache it
doesn't have to be called out in the LICENSE file.

Agreed. But not critical?
