Device/app specs: iOS 10.0.1, iPhone 6s, app 5.2.1 (942). This has not been fixed yet in the current build so I moved it to the "Blocked or Waiting" section.

If we are using libraries which are under specific licenses, we should not keep releasing builds until they are attributed. To do so otherwise is a breach of licenses...and Wikipedia is more than articles, but a free content/information etc. and not attributing is a breach of our main pillar... /me sad

To be honest, I do not like that the previous build was released in the stores despite this.

Agreed. Thats why this ticket if marked High and was fixed first. It should be fixed in the internal channel later today.

Unfortunately this took a little effort to fix because of some major changes to our code structure to support iOS 10. Since 5.2.1 was already code complete and in testing when you found this, I decided not to pull the submission to fix this, but to make it our first priority for the next version.

Testing on iPad Air 2 (iOS 10.0.1) and Wikipedia build 5.3.0 (953). The libraries attribution looks fixed as shown in the screencap below.
