Can a closed-source sofrware be free

Software https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/387710/can-a-closed-source-sofrware-be-free

I saw any closed-source applications (for Windows), which license allows to do everything with it, such as disassembling, decompiling and adjustment, but no source is dispersed, although no obfuscation was applied. I wonder whether it can be considered as free (as in liberty ) software and when it could go into Ubuntu universe instead of multiverse.
