No. And I assume that this term is also applicable to the cards in the
two-piece slimline CD jewelboxes that have a cover sheet that folds over
to give a title spine and a tab visible on the back.

I would call it an "insert", "insert sheet", "insert booklet" or
"insert card". Recordings of all types had sheets inserted, even
booklets. This goes back to cylinders, 78 albums, pre-recorded tape,
and LPs, among others. You might make a differentiation for something
that acts like a picture cover inside a clear outer cover, and perhaps
call it a "display insert". If it unfolds, it might even be an "insert
poster". I've seen these things that are record size with printing on
one side broken into blocks, but when unfolded the other side is one
large poster picture. But if is part of the inside of the package, it
is an "insert".
