I think this is untroublesome.  It is saying that _if_ modifications
are submitted to the upstream (impliedly, by the authors of the
modifications), the upstreams are granted permission to redistribute.

There is no obligation on a patch author to submit, so the licence
condition is no problem.

It looks like an attempt to deal with the "patches submitted with no
signed-off-by" problem.

I assume you are looking at some actual software you think is released
under this licence.  There may be other problems with that specific
software, of course, so the answer I am giving is necesssarily
