I am sure others who are more knowledgeable will weigh in, but what I have read is that since home video did not exist when the contract was written, those rights were not included in the contract. Home video was not even a concept when this movie was made. Many TV shows (i.e. WKRP in Cincinnati) were affected as well; broadcast and re-runs were covered, but not home video -- or cable TV, which also required its own clearances.
So for films made after home video came along, music rights are built into the contract? That would make sense! I still feel I must be missing a little something, though, because it was common for films to be shown on TV for many years before home video came along, and it was fine to rebroadcast on TV without extra music rights clearances...
