If it was actually AGPLed in its entirety, the maintainer would just
remove code which enforced the 5 user limitation.

Based on the facts, you're probably talking about Servoy.[1]

They're probably doing some crazy AGPL bits on top of more restrictively
licensed bits; since they're the copyright holder, they can do that, but
it may mean that no one else can actually use and/or distribute the
code.

In any event, without particular licenses and source files, we're having
an academic discussion without concrete information or relation to
Debian, which isn't on topic for debian-legal.

something.
