Can anyone tell me why or how it happened that the music world uses the word 'Foleys' for just about anything that was once recorded but happens to be no instrument? For about 80 years now Foleys are Soundeffects produced by hands/feets with or without tools involved. By an foley artist. Because of that guy:
So I would call those '20 ambience recordings of san francisco'

What I've learned is that a person's name becomes synonymous or noun for something like: Daltonism or color blindness to have been discovered by John Dalton.

As you know, the page that you mentioned shows the name of 'Jack Donovan Foley' the developer of the first sound effects for movies. Foley Effects, is translated in many countries as soundplasty or sound engineer, working with complementary sound effects.

If 'Foleys' "is used for just about anything that was once recorded", maybe someone understood it wrong, or maybe if you are not of English language you may have listened foolish: lacking good sense, judgment, unwise. I know a lot of foolish music and also composers. Give a link of some text about it, I'm curious.

Being a musician (a hobbyist, as well as a studio work grunt, from time to time,) for roughly as long as I have been a writer (and a published author in minor magazines around the U.S,.) I have to say that, though well-presented, Hans Irgend, the fact remains that, etymology (the study of the origin of words,) is not really the issue here. Your comment does tackle the initial how/why bit of Plendix's comment, but I would agree with Plendix, that the pack should be retitled, seeing as "foley" is becoming the newest catch-all phrase.
Recently, a drum pack containing an array of kicks, snares, hihats and toms, each foldered seperately, also had a "foley" folder. In it were unlabeled drums that, though oddly mangled, were merely warped versions of the other folders, thus, not foley, but just severely altered drum machine hits. It's not a huge deal, in and of itself, but it is not what I expected.
This is a source of frustration for me, because I see it everywhere. Music, because it is, to some degree, subjective, is being terribly mislabeled, and not just in packs. Some examples are best shown in certain pack titles though: a pack of Boom Bap drums claiming the kicks to be "Hardstyle;" a pack claiming to have "piccolo" snares that were heavily compressed drum machine snares; and, a pack that had "Hip Hop guitars" (whatever that means; Soul? Funk?) which, it turned out, sounded more like John Mayer drunkenly slamming out cliche chord progressions. I half expect to see a pack out soon with 80's, synth-driven harmonic minor leads and 30 yr old drum machine hits titled "Future 12-bit Techno Trap." I jest, (slightly,) but this leads me to my point.
When words are used incorrectly, people may think that they are using them in some clever or avant garde fashion, but they are merely muddying the meaning and confusing people in the process. I am fine with new conjunctive words, slang, and even non-words (like "covefefe,") gaining footing if the meaning is agreed upon, but at the end of the day, if words don't convey any solid meaning due to misuse, they're really just mouth-hole noises spat out by beasts just barely higher than anything else on the food chain.
Maybe emojis are the next evolutionary step in mankind's attempts to convey what they really mean to one another.....or maybe covfefe.

(I think Olymoon should weigh in on this one...even if it's just with an emoji. XD )

Yes, this has bothered me forever. I've worked in post audio for thirty years and foley tracks are performed effects - walking, prop handling, cloth movement - done in sync to picture, distinct from ambiences and hard or spot effects, edited from prerecorded sounds, or production effects that come from the production sound (dialog) recording. This distinction is universal in post, and important enough that Foley tracks are usually premixed to their own stem. So the arbitrary use of "Foley" to denote any non-music sound is an irritant for me every time. But I've given up tilting at that windmill - this usage among electronic musicians seems to be firmly established, so the language must bend to include it.

You asked for it...

it is not the one who talks about it the most who eats it the most.
