If they were both removable and modifiable (so not invariant), they would
be DFSG-free and nobody would have any reason to remove them.
Even if they were removable but not modifiable, they would still not be
DFSG-free, so the only way to get a DFSG-free document would be to have them

Well, in that case they'll make the document DFSG-nonfree. If they were
removable and modifiable the document would be DFSG-free (except for the DRM
clause, of course).
So, to summarize:
Removable and modifiable -> Debian would most certainly carry them
Removable but unmodifiable -> Debian would remove them
Unremovable and unmodifiable -> Debian would not carry the document at all
