➢ The OP claimed the file was only in the FIPS tarballs, and not in the
    OpenSSL tarballs.  My questions were based on that.
So the OP is wrong. 

➢ Saying "in the distribution and website" is also quite vague and
    thus another example of a non-answer.
No it’s not.  The OpenSSL distributions, starting with 1.1.0 have a README.ECC file that points to a license on the Website.  

We are an open source project, we do not provide legal advice.  This is consistent, we have never given patent advice, nor crypto import or export advice.
