No, it's a recognition of a crummy test suite. The lsb does not itself
mention, eg, /etc/gettydefs -- which cannot be a part of debian since
the gettyps package that contains it is non-free. The test suite
however, tests against the entire FHS, which includes a statement to the
effect of, "gettydefs, if it exists, must be in /etc". Nowhere does it
mandate that this non-free part of software be part of a FHS compliant
or a LSB compliant system. In all such cases, I looked at the packages
and made sure they installed the file into the right place, and then put
in one of those comments.
