A maximum game fun consensus appears to have emerged, and I have only been watching with one eye, and what I note here has probaly been mentioned by Peter by now; but in the Tarkalorsaga (KoS, p.174) appears a story about the Night Jumpers of the Kurtali clan. The story is not that relevant, but one sentence in their negotiations with the Tribal King Enfrew may be -- "The clan said it would agree, but only if the clan was exempt from all normal payments to the king, including tribute and battle plunder and found treasures and visiting rights." This proves the breaking point in negotiations, so clearly they are of some value, or were in the time of Enfrew, though I am far from certain when that was.

So it might appear that not only the clan, but the Tribal King, may actually have some claim upon "found treasures", at least in that tribe? (Malani???)

Dunno if helpful at all.
