I do not think that these files belong in the tarball. Especially the sdio.ids is not something that should be in the tarball. If it is missing locally, a script can always download it rom systemd.git tree. That is where the source is for these and not the tarball.
If you want to apply patches from git, then you can always tell git to exclude these files and it will happily apply the rest of the patch. So I do not see a good enough reason to do this.
