It won't, but that doesn't really matter.
You don't want errors for the files because they're not included in a
release. The only reliable way to tell that they aren't included in
the release is to run the release scripts. We don't want to set
inspect to ignore these files because if they were accidentally
included in a release, inspect should complain. The ideal solution
would be to change the build so that these files were placed somewhere
under bin.v2, but that might not be realistic.
On the other hand, there are a few false positives that no one cares
about. Including you, since if you did, you would have noticed them
