I think Gilbert Ramirez contributed the original versions of those; I think all the rest of his contributions are GPL'ed - Gilbert, any reason not to add a GPL comment to them?
  epan/dissectors/packet-bootparams.h

Nathan Neulinger contributed those; the corresponding C files are GPL'ed. I don't know if he's still reading the lists.
  epan/dissectors/packet-nfs.h
  epan/dissectors/packet-nlm.h
I think Uwe Girlich contributed those; again, the corresponding C files 
are GPL'ed.  I don't know if he's still reading the lists.
  epan/dissectors/packet-x11-keysym.h
Christophe Tronche contributed that; epan/dissectors/packet-x11.c is 
GPL'ed.  I don't know if he's still reading the lists.
  gtk/win32-file-dlg.h
Gerald?  That one's yours, I think....

  tools/lemon/cppmagic.h
I'm not sure whether that comes with Lemon or if we added it.

Also there are two other files missing details, where it would just
need confirmation:
  - epan/in_cksum.h, but in_cksum.c is marked BSD
That one's arguably mine - none of the declarations are from BSD - I 
added the vec_t structure and the declaration of in_cksum_shouldbe(). 
Given that in_cksum.c is copyrighted by the Regents of the University of 
California with a 3-clause BSD license, I guess we could put that 
license on in_cksum.h.
  - epan/dfilter/grammar.h, but grammar.c is marked LGPL
grammar.c is a generated file; the license comes from Lemon - see the 
comment at the beginning.  grammar.h is also generated by Lemon; for 
better or worse, it adds no copyright notice to it.
For packages that, in their source tarballs, include generated files, 
such as the output of yacc/bison/lex/flex/lemon/etc., is there a 
standard Debian policy on whether the build process should rebuild them, 
or just use the versions that come with the source tarball?
The last remaining problem is epan/dissectors/packet-diameter-defs.h
which is noted copyright (c) 2005 by Anders Broman and has no license
attached.
It now has a GPL copyright notice on it - Anders added it on July 19th.
