With make-big-lm -no-sos -no-eos  it's true that <s> and </s> appear in the unigram section of the LM (they are still part of the vocabulary, similar to other words that might occur in your vocab file but don't occur in your training data), but there are not higher-order order N-gram involving <s> or </s> in the resulting LM.

That just means that those ngrams are in the input count file 
(merge-iter9-1.ngrams.gz).  You need to also include -no-eos -no-sos 
when generating the counts (e.g., with make-batch-counts or directly 
with ngram-count).
