It boils down to whether the signature is part of the source code as it is
defined by GPLv2.
I find the terminology quite ambiguous and I am not aware of any court
ruling on that topic.
I would guess that the signature is part of the source code if it is
necessary to rebuild the executable such that it executes the same way.
