CVS modes are set when the file is first checked in, and can't be
changed (except by manually fiddling with the repository, which SF staff
have to do for you)

If they're saved from windows to a UNIX drive, or committed from windows
there's a good chance they'll have executable bits set (I regularly go
through the repository where I work and remove all the 'x' bits from
source files, caused by developers working on windows and saving to our
UNIX development boxes over samba).

This might be the cause of the 'x' bits on Boost files too.
