I am not sure this is even the right place to ask but the mailing list says "questions". The query is simply out of curiosity as a FreeBSD user as well as PlayStation user, wondering if at least some of Sony's profits ends up in FreeBSD as money or code.

FWIW, excerpt from interview with Deb Goodkin 

Some of the companies, like Sony, take advantage of the BSD license and 
don’t give back at all.
