I was curious, so I did a few searches to see if foreigners traveling from the USA to Cuba must qualify for a license, just like Americans. So far I haven't seen anything that squarely addresses that. I booked a trip a few months ago, and I recall selecting the athletic event category on united.com as I booked my flights. What I don't know is whether the site would have asked for my license category had I not been a US citizen.

As a practical matter, it seems extremely unlikely that US authorities would ever look into whether a foreign national traveling from the USA to Cuba was, in fact, eligible for a general license. This hardly ever happens with Americans, and foreigners would seem like even less of a priority.
