Specifically, it is during the process of releasing that an ASF project
reviews the licenses included within a codebase. Taking code direct from
ASF subversion (and more particularly unreleased code), the ASF will
give no guarantees over licenses used. It would be legitimate to have
incompatibly licensed code in SVN, so long as it is removed before the
product is released.

So yes, the code will be there, but no, the ASF will not be making any
statements about the licensing credentials of that code. Do with it as
you wish.
