What are the commons practices for licensing a Javadoc JAR file?

Since the Javadoc is automatically generated, is it legally possible to license it under a project-specific license?

Otherwise, how to license the project-specific contents that are included in the Javadoc?

For information, I'm using Gradle as a build tool, it generates the Javadoc as a build task and I would put the license file in the META-INF folder of the Javadoc JAR.
