First I've ever heard of this, and I doubt it a bit. Is there any documentation of something like that having taken place?

If this was true, license-conscious things like Debian would probably ship it as well, because Vice is not very useful without. At it says:
This package does not contain the various ROM images needed to actually use the emulators; they are available separately from other locations (see the README.ROMs file). A corporation in the Netherlands called Tulip holds the copyrights to the ROM images, and redistribution is not permitted, but VICE itself is unencumbered.
This may be a bit out of date, but not Commodore-much.
