My research said that the original (alpha? beta? unnumbered?) downloads circa May '07 did not have the custom exceptions, only the standard GPL-font-embedding-exception, as it says here: http://www.webcitation.org/query?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.press.redhat.com%2F2007%2F05%2F09%2Fliberation-fonts%2F&date=2008-01-17 and that the updated license was added subsequently.
Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean that that was intentional (a la this other licensing bug from Aug 2007: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=250753). Unfortunately, the tarballs for the oldest releases here: https://fedorahosted.org/releases/l/i/liberation-fonts/ are timestamped from 2010, so that may be hard to prove conclusively, modulo time travel.
