BSD is not open source. FreeBSD is open source.

BSD was a payware product for a long time. BSD is no longer with us, but
FreeBSD is still around.  I suspect that you are seeing headers from
legacy code in M$ products. I think that whatever is left of BSD is now
owned by an Canadian software company (Wind River???).  Perhaps someone
will have more info to share.
