I was told Windows Server 2008 R2 was bundled with SharePoint. Is this true? I haven't been able to find the feature anywhere in the Server Roles/Features interface.

It is "budnled" in taht you do not have to pa for it. It is not bundled in that you have to download the free version separately. The current version is on (Sharepoint 2010 Foundation)

Windows Small Business Server 2008 comes with Exchange 2007 and Sharepoint Services 3.0. I have never heard of it coming bundled with any other OS.

That said, I recently reviewed the minimum system requirements for Sharepoint 2010 and nearly had a heart attack, so tread carefully if you're going to go to 2010.

It is not bundled. You must download it separately, specifically Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1 or higher. Documentation on that here (TechNet).
