I'm talking about the s1-bits tape, though. It contains two
binary kernels (the warm/cold ones described in the manpages),
as raw data in the sections that aren't mentioned in the Readme
file. (i.e. the first 50176 bytes).

I figured this out by analyzing the file and noticing it
contained copies of /etc/init, getty, /bin/chmod, date, login,
mkdir, sh, tap, and ls, which is similar to the lists of
programs mentioned in:

I worked out that the rest of the structure also matched, though
I think the sizes were different.
