That conclusion appears to be right.

You'll need to repackage the original source as an .orig.tar.gz file
yourself. The DFSG applies to the contents of source and binary
packages alike.

Henning Makholm                   "The great secret, known to internists and
                         learned early in marriage by internists' wives, but
               still hidden from the general public, is that most things get
         better by themselves. Most things, in fact, are better by morning."
