ET 5th freedom flights in Europe?

I know that ET offers OSL-ARN and VIE-ARN as 5th freedom flights but I have also seen that the airline adds on other stops to some of its EU destinations. Are those also 5th freedom flights or the two spoken about above are the sole ones in the continent that they hold?
