If it is not a BGA package RoHS compliance for devices from before 2007 is pretty possible AFAIK. Ag/Cu contacts are pretty usual and comply with RoHS. The inner of the chip should be RoHS compliant anyway. I don't think that RoHS must be warranted at production already, but at sale. I am not sure though.
Whenever you're sad just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.
