As Raffi stated, that's the way it's supposed to work:

The source parameter is only relevant for *old* applications. I don't
know the exact cutoff date, but I'm fairly certain it's over six months
ago. Any application registered after that date *cannot* use the source
parameter to identify itself. You *must* authenticate using OAuth if
you wish your application to be identified as the source of updates.
