Not "but".  We do not disagree here - I ask, and you tell me that things 
are fine.  Reason I kept asking is that you apparently answered 
something else than what I ask.

And reason I treat those files special is that they are binary, so often 
do not contain (properly maintained) copyright metadata themselves.

"others" is not a legal entity.

What needs to be listed in Files sections is the actual copyright 
holders, not all contributors.
