In this context, I lean towards considering music that uses samples to
be an adaption of those sample.
However, the license is clearly written with remixes and combinations in
mind, where you either stay in the same category as the licensed work
(e.g remix music to music) or combine categories (add music to video).
It is no written for works that are meant to be "raw" material, like
fonts or sample-packs. In this sense, your question has no clear answer,
which is worse than a Yes.
