They don't. If they did, they'd have a different patchlevel (the -14).

I included the patches in the slackbuild tarball in the possible but
unlikely event that debian.org disappears someday.

As far as including patches in /usr/doc... if we're going to do that,
we should be including everything from the slackbuild tarball. README,
extra docs, .info file, etc.
