Only the initial upload contains a source, the buildd uploads and
manual port builds don't.

Katie ensures that the initial upload does in fact contain
source, or rather it checks if source for an upload are
available. Sources for a binary only recompile upload (1.2-3.4.5)
have to look for the non recompile version for source (1.2-3.4
diff/dsc, 1.2 orig.tar.gz or 1.2-3.4 tar.gz).

They do, see above.
