The notion that databases are not in source control is not uncommon.  I run into this all the time!  Source control people!! Just do it!

There are cases where they shouldn't be.

For instance you may have some code that builds the database objects on the fly, or in response to something.  You may have some formal tooling that does the same - Powerbuilder or somesuch.

Plenty of edge cases, but then all that's happened is the source under control is moved away from the pointy end.
