There are so many loopholes in these agreements that's it possible fox found another way to hold on.
There was a major discussion about it when DD's rights were about to expire, in DD's forum and some other. Basically, like SoNicRaDiATioN said the rights expired on Oct. 10th, and some insider revealed that Marvel had tried to negotiate to obtain the rights for both Silver Surfer and Galactus in exchange for letting Fox extending the deadline of the DD rights, which Fox had refused, so it is assumed that Marvel has gotten the rights back once the deadline passed.

I'm not sure why there isn't a huge news announcement about it, but it seems like when it comes to deals like this, they like to keep it discreet and secretive, that's why there's still some rampant speculations about the longetivity of those rights Marvel sold to studios like Sony and Fox.
