I think the answer is no because the FreeRADIUS source tree includes
many patches from different people/organizations.

I'm not qualified for legal questions, but it looks different to me.
While the possibility is very low that someone will sue Debian for
redistributing binary versions of the eap submodules, it just doesn't
make sense that someone will contribute something to FreeRADIUS and
afterwards prevent the distribution by the FreeRADIUS project itself.
