Note that the license says "... is distributed *with* your Operating
System", and not "is part of". I don't know where you read the "part of"
bit? Anyway, we definitely do distribute non-free *with* our OS, it's in
debian/pool/non-free on all our mirrors alongside debian/pool/main, and
distributing it in the same directory hierarchy is definitity "with" in
my book.

Could you paste your answer to the p&p question below[0] ?

- What is Debian's (current) approach to non-free software?  Why?  Is
non-free part of the Debian System?
