Yes, but in that case the byte stream was the "preferred form of the work for making modifications to it" per the GPL. In the case of a BLOB, that's not the case.Apart from being ugly the above is perfectly legal and nothing speaks against adding it, _provided_ this is the source. I have actually seen GPL sources with such byte sequences in it for cases where the toolchain couldn't emit the right opcodes.
The BLOB code was compiled and assembled at some time, from a source file you don't have.
