Those licenses can apply to any software, not just programs. So, if
the software is an audio work or picture, a software license like GPL
or Expat can apply to it.

If the work is accompanying a program, it makes sense to license it
under the same software license. In the case of a software work that
has no programs, a license like Expat should be fine. Even the GPL
terms could be used, so long as it's clear what "the preferred form of
the work for making modifications to it" means for that work.
