Yes - the modifications to BUILD.gn seem to all be done by Google/Chromium

When Chromium pulls in a third party dependency they sometimes but the
build files just outside of the copy of the third party repo, and this time
the build files got checked in to the upstream repo. I'm not sure why -
perhaps there were other gn based projects using ffmpeg.
