Under the FSDG fonts are mentioned as part of "information for
practical use." [0]

The FSDG goes on to say that "all information for practical use in a
free distribution must be available in source form."

If there is no source then it can't meet that criteria. It also sounds
like a GPL violation if they're licensed in that way as you say and
have no source. That's another reason to avoid them then since there
would be no way to comply with the license even if they were added.
