The crux of the matter is that I need to find packages created by recipes and to link the packages listed in image's manifest files to these packages.
The way I've been doing it, which is probably not optimal and specific
to one package format, is to lookup .ipk packages from the image
manifest, then use the .ipk control info "OE" key to find the
originating recipe.
FWIW, the mapping from binary package names recipes and recipe metadata like
LICENSE is available from buildhistory. Also binary package content of images
is available from buildhistory. With some scripting it is possible to list
recipes which produce binaries to images, except for static linking and
header-only recipes but I hope these cought via some other way.
