I'd agree with your logic here: there are some pieces that can be GPL-3 but not all. And those same pieces can't be GPL-2+ (in the 2.X sense).

It would best to use just GPL-2 here unless you knew somehow (separate license file, something on their site indicated, etc) that they meant GPL-2+ and they've simply not modified all their sources files to match yet.
