Oh yes they do. Not on single-CD installation disks, but all Linux
distros provide source package files for all Open Source packages they
provide, from their own repositories. Usually the "original" tarball
included in such source packages is *exactly* the same one that is or
was available from the package's upstream, and the distro-specific
changes, if any, are then as separate diff files.
