If it's a 1:1 copy - or really close to - of a commercial font then it's most likely copyright infringement.

I would say that depends on the deal between the company behind the OS and the designer. If they were solely paid for by the company then most likely the company owns the copyright. If they instead were licensed then the original designer holds the copyright.
