No it isn't, it is just bad capitalization. It is not a proper noun,

of those adjectives derived from proper nouns.

Referring to something as Libre is a fairly accepted standard in English
even when referring to open source.
Better yet however is just freaking clarifying whether you mean free as in
no cost, or free as in open source. Then we don't have to worry about
things like this.
