Right; unoil.jar contains Java classes representing the UNOIDL entities 
in LO's module offapi.  For historical reasons, the conversion from 
UNOIDL entities to Java classes (with LO's javamaker tool) is done 
directly to Java byte code, instead of to Java source code first.

(Similarly, LO's ridl.jar is a combination of classes compiled from 
ridljar/com/ *.java sources and generated from udkapi/com/ *.idl files.)

Yes (I can confirm at least for unoil.jar as included in LO; see below 
for my ignorance of Maven).

I have no idea who uploaded what to Maven, but I would guess that the 
"5.4.2" there corresponds to LO version 5.4.2, i.e., what got tagged 
(i.e., the latest libreoffice-5.4.2.x tag, denoting the final release 
rather than a release candidate towards the final release.)
