I have requested clarification from NetBSD who state that the copyright notice in the file is part of the information about that release. It is not a copyright claim over that file. See http://mail-index.netbsd.org/netbsd-users/2017/07/13/msg019836.html

Yes. I left a comment on the debian file explaining the situation and it got accepted. See https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-perl/packages/libsystem-info-perl.git/commit/?id=02f03414bdd530c9b87e360b52ef9b7bf90b1f8b
