At least in -current, the ones build when you compile a kernel are built with -@ option passed to dtc, which provides the necessary symbol table in the .dtb file or the Broadcom loader to process the overlay.

Ah, that helps, thanks.  I was using the images from
http://www.invisible.ca/arm/ .  I just did a refresh rebuild of
current and indeed the .dtb files match now.
