I suggest you ask the manager for the SoW to see what deliverables are included. Client may be taking advantage of your friendliness/eagerness to get some extra work outta you

It’s not that doing that extra work would be tough but then the firm now assumes responsibility for that extra work and is liable. We do not want to take up extra liability unless we get paid for it.
