Correct. Or it will download the sources from the Internet if you
selected download from Internet. "Sources only" and "Redo Sources" only
applies to the current installed version since it is always on the left
side of the selection window. This is the equivalent of
ReDownload/Reinstall for the Binaries package. They only apply to the
current since selecting any of the other version on the right side of the
window gives you the option for source.

I'm not sure I ever noticed and/or knew where they go when installed. I
vaguely remember a change being discussed not long ago about changing
and/or making it operator specified where the source was installed - but
I haven't checked the ChangeLog yet. It will be a few days for me to get
a chance to check if anyone else wants a shot.
