No false positive. This file is indeed marked as an executable file, see
also at https://github.com/cran/qs/blob/0.14.1/src/LZ4/LICENSE, which says

> Executable File | 25 lines (20 sloc) | 1.28 KB 

On a Unix-based system you could do

> chmod -x src/LZ4/LICENSE

to remove the executable bit from that file.
