Yes, you are correct. I have downloaded package description through 
guix import cran -r <package>. This resulted expat licence.

But its showing as MIT in the following link.

The authors github page shows a file licence. Does it mean there is no
proper licensing applied for the package? In that case what should we do.

I have tried to check with previous package contributions in cran.scm
and found mismatch to whats available in website, source page to that of
result from guix import cran -r

r-isoband is showing expat in guix import,   MIT in website( ,  git page
shows a file

r-hrbrthemes is showing expat in guix import,   MIT in website,  git
page shows a file
