Moving to CRAN per se has nothing to do with this. If the files have
been in the source package you submitted (they have been, including a
safety copy DESCRIPTION~ which you might want to eliminate in future
versions), they are also in the source package on CRAN.
The point is that they are not installed and hence not included in
binary packages.

Put them into the inst/ subdirectory, then they will also be installed.
