Yes, they do:

$ pkg info SUNWutr
             Name: SUNWutr
          Summary: Sun Ray Core Services Configuration (root)
      Description: startup and service configuration files
         Category: System/Virtualization
            State: Installed
        Publisher: sunray
    Build Release: 5.11
           Branch: 0.0
   Packaging Date: Tue Apr 14 17:50:15 2015
             Size: 455.08 kB
             FMRI: pkg://sunray/SUNWutr@,5.11-0.0:20150414T175015Z

(not the latest version :-)

As you can see, there is a separate publisher ("sunray").  Oracle ships
the complete repository, adds the publisher during software installation
and removes the publisher afterwards.

My guess is that they do this because it is not possible to "pkg update"
from one Sun Ray software version to the next.  However, you can find
and examine the repository inside the SRSS distribution.
