is this regarding non‐free code or non‐free artworks? - what are the copyright problems exactly?

most importantly, how do you know this? - can you provide some example file or web URL that others can verify for themselves?

exactly which parabola package is in question here?

$ pacman -Ss freedroid
community/freedroid 1.0.2-10
    a clone of the classic game 'Paradroid' on Commodore 64
community/freedroidrpg 0.16.1-3
    a mature science fiction role playing game set in the future

most ppl agree that any freedom patches in debian should be applied in parabola - are there actually any for this program today that are not patched in parabola?

Another issue.
There is Female Hunter NPC. She has Superman logo which is non‐free.
Both packages.
There is no non‐free code. Some artwork is derivative work from Paradroid.

About patches: freedroid package is not patches. When player uses "Deck Map", it crashes with SIGSEGV, which is fixed in Debian.
There is white square when hovering over Deck Map, it is fixed in fork.
I think you should it: https://github.com/ReinhardPrix/FreedroidClassic (please, check Paradroid.ogg sound license, also apply Debian patches where possible, fix Collision sound and uncomment DeathCount).
