I would like to understand better the nature of the concern. The license is MIT. The paragraph in question is a notice, not limiting the usage of the SDK.
I can definitely reduce number of headers. I can merge all necessary interfaces into one header, though maintenance will take more resources. Which way would you prefer?

Is this part of the software license?
If yes, this can definitely not be committed to the FFmpeg repository.
If not, please remove it.
Before removing it, please check with the original author (AMD) that it is not part of the software license.
