AFAIK we don't (though we do have some firmware in
jessie-security/non-free, and sponsors did list a few non-free
packages, not including this one -- it would be worth clarifying).
In this case however I wonder how libclamunrar even made it to the
archive - this is linking libclamav (GPL) with an embedded copy of
Unrar (non-free) with no explicit exception, which only the copyright
holder of 100% clamav/GPL code can do. I would stay away from it.
