The package handbrake-cli should be blacklisted in your-freedom package.
A simple test shows this, e.g typing this in the terminal with input
replaced by any video which contains audio
"HandBrakeCLI -i input -o output.mp4" 
shows the output file uses FAAC.

Apparently, handbrake can also use a free AAC encoder now so a libre
version of handbrake-gtk and handbrake-cli might be possible to build.
