Most likely, yes.

Or, *much* more likely, he just downloaded them from the same places I did, when they first started getting leaked to the net some years ago. It wasn't particularly "secret", they were widely leaked and available, and people into music production were of course quite keen to check them purely out of interest as us nerds are interested in stuff like this.
And I know at least one person who was involved in the production of a lot of those console music-themed games that confirmed this was where these multitrack leaks were coming from (and who was pretty p*ssed off about the leaks).
I don't know if much new stuff has appeared other than what was leaked then, which again supports my theory. If he can do what nobody else can, and magically extract mixes back into stems (which we all know is impossible to do with any degree of quality, but is kinda-sorta-partially possible in some cases with varying (but poor) results), then it's a simple matter for him to "prove" it by taking a request for *any* given modern track, particularly an obscure one, which people can supply him with a good quality AIFF of - and which he won't of course do, because, well, that's not what's happening.
I *am* surprised his youtube account hasn't been taken down, though...
