Because the contents of that package are free (GPL v2 only). They just
depend on some other non-free stuff out of Debian. Keep in mind that
the package does not include any bit from Adobe or any other thrid
party, it just includes the set of scripts that allow you to get the
non-free player from Adobe yourself. flashplugin-nonfree does not
contain anything non-free, it just depends on it. It's not the only
package that does it this way, see msttcorefonts for example.
