Possible ZFS License issue

Last night I was on https://zfsonlinux.org/ where I noticed that the SPL part of ZFS on Linux is licensed under the GPL and the rest, as far as I can tell, is licensed as CDDL.

Earlier tonight, I happened to notice in pamac-manager that only the CDDL is mentioned on the LICENSES: line and was wondering, since the SPL is part of the ZFS module now, if that line should be updated to reflect that parts are licensed under the GPL such as "LICENSES: CDDL GPL" similar to how Firefox has "LICENSES: MPL GPL LGPL"

My apologies if this is the wrong area to post this at.
