Yes, only packages that pass make check are present.

It fails make check with
* checking for unstated dependencies in tests ... OK
* checking tests ... ERROR
Running the tests in ‘tests/priorWeights.R’ failed.

Error in library(mlmRev) : there is no package called 'mlmRev'
* elapsed time (check, wall clock): 7:57
However, mlmRev itself depends on lme4, so it's not available. It seems like a bug in the tests which should not fail if mlmRev is not available since it's only suggested, not required.
