As an owner of several Google org repos on GitHub, I can vouch that this is definitely true. Only open sourced code goes into GitHub. Private repos are only used for staging purposes thereof, i.e. getting a release of open source code ready prior to the world visibility bit being flipped.

We would definitely never store our proprietary code on systems run by anyone else, regardless of who runs/owns them.
