The BSD licence still says that you have to keep the copyright notice in the source code. The reason you know that MS used BSD code is that MS complied with the BSD requirement that binaries reproduce the BSD licence, also.
Using the code without including the licence is a copyright violation.
This is even true for "modern" BSD code, because (think about it) it is a derivative work of older BSD code.
