Technically, yes, if they don't own the grave they have no right to put anything permanent on it. But maybe it is a "family" plot and technically they do own it because the stone setter should have gotten clearence from the cemetery director. Whose name is the deed in? Is your husband in charge? Is his father still alive?

If the two siblings put for example "Beloved sister of Ethel and Jane" while not mentioning Tom, Dick and Harry as a slap in the face to Tom, Dick and Harry and a way to say we loved her more than you did, then, yes they overstepped and are off in rudenessland. I can't imagine a reason to put their own names on their sibling's footstone. A nice message I can see, but they should still be asking permission from the official next of kin, plot owner or executor. it is just a matter of respect.
