Have you checked the contents of the Debian source package to see
whether it actually contains the binary files? There may be some other
reason why the Debian source files are smaller - perhaps the Iceweasel
icon file sizes are smaller than the corresponding Firefox images? ;-)

If the Iceweasel source packages do contain the Windows DLLs then I'd
say that's a bug reporting issue rather than a legal query. (Not that
the binary files don't pose legal problems; just that the solution is
technical and, I'd guess, relatively simple.)
