Should I include any thank you notes if the band has included them on the album liner?

If I should include them where would I put them? (Additional Notes maybe?)

I wouldn't say any. Those almost obligatory huge lists where a band thanks 500 other bands and half their families are probably overkill. But notable dedications are fine, as are other more succinct, stand-out thank-yous, if you make sure to keep a neutral tone. And yes, the additional notes are the right place for this.

Valid examples:

"The album is dedicated to Donald Duck."
"In the liner notes, the band thanks the drummer's pet hamster."
"Bei da Blèdheit samma Briăda!" -Kurt Sowinetz (RIP) || Last.fm | Discogs | musik-sammler.de
