No.  Only firmware.   Fedora's trademarks are not a problem at all.

How?  Your claim here is certainly not supported by the FSF.  although
they have some issues with the recommendation of non-free plugins and if
you consider it a legal question,  it is outside the scope of FESCo. 
FESCo can still discuss it from a policy perspective but then pointing
to FSF guidelines confuses a policy discussion with a legal one.
