chromium-browser from experimental has included h.264 by default?

Hi, i didn't know where or how to report this, but i have readed in a forum that an user has tried chromium-browser from experimental and seems that it includes by default those privative codecs. I have tried by myself and i agree with him, but maybe i am wrong.

this is the process. Adding ubuntu launchpad repositories to install chromium, you need to install
chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-nonfree in order to watch youtube videos in html5 format.

Purging those packages and installin chronium-browser from experimental i can watch those videos without installing anything else. 

Is this correct? does chromium-browser package in debian have
h264 codecs included? is this because it is in experimental and they will be separated later? or just a mistake? or maybe those codecs are included in other package installed that i haven't seen?
