Not really. "Software" is mentioned in the Preamble, in some clarifying
remarks in Section 7, and in Section 10 (referring to software
copyrighted by the FSF). Section 3 talks about "media customarily used
for software interchange". I see no other mention of "software".

The GPL uses the term "Program" quite extensively, and Section 0 defines
it as a "program or work". It is therefore not restricted not any
specific kind of work.
