You are not bothering to read section three which says, actually:

"The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
code means all the source code modules it contains, plus any
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
control compilation and installation of the executable."

Note carefully: "any associated interface definition files".
