Use of default resources


Is there any license/copyright limitation in using also default resources from MSFS DevMode for commercial scenery projects?

eg. using some default vegetation, lights, apron textures etc etc if the project will be payware?

I would like to know the same concerning sound. What if I use sound from a default aircraft because the plane I am building sound the same?

It's main and common license of XBOX related stuff:
Main points: free projects only, no sounds reuse, no reverse engineer (like parse GLTF).
But it became a normal practice in MSFS to reuse some default PCK sound package or edited model though.
