It might be very possible, that the cases you mention don't need any credits, as 
those PKGBUILDs were probably written from scratch instead.

In fact I know of a case where a very trivial package of mine was adopted by a 
TU into community: https://github.com/archlinux/svntogit-community/blob/

That's me! :D
