Sounds like the Savannah server should be be checking that for all

No, because some projects deliberately don't want this check. Emacs is one (gnulib imports are copied into the Emacs repository), Tar is another (it always uses whatever gnulib you've got). A check like this should be enabled only for projects that prefer the Coreutils style.
If they copy gnulib into Emacs repo, then they are not using a submodule. And if they have a foo-gnulib repository, the check should be against that repository, not upstream gnulib, so it makes sense in both cases.
