OK. In the case that we've incorporated code, we could switch to doing:

"""
src/kudu/gutil/valgrind.h: Hybrid BSD (half BSD, half zlib)
src/kudu/util (some portions): 3-clause BSD license
src/kudu/util (HdrHistogram-related classes): public domain
src/kudu/util/{random-util.cc},{random.h}: some portions adapted from
WebRTC project (modules/video_coding/main/test/test_util.cc) under a
3-clause BSD license.

  For full license text of the above licenses, please refer to the license
headers at the top of the respective files.
"""

...and then make sure that those files contain the full text of the
license, instead of copy-pasting the text into LICENSE.txt. Does that sound
like the best path forward?
