Nope, [0] is not the correct source.  Note that the source is reported
missing for package 'libzrtpcpp-1.4-0/1.4.6-1+b101', which in
debparanoia's notation means 'libzrtpcpp-1.4-0' is the package name and
'1.4.6-1+b101' is the debian package version.  (yeah package name
misrepresents version, but that's another problem).

This is the snapshot entry for 1.4.6-1:


and there it lists no files under 'source files'.

Maybe the 1.4.6-1 version was so short-lived that snapshot did not pick
up the source package? (it only snapshots every 6 hours !?).

Did I overlook something?

Yeah the short-lived package problem seems like a plausible theory,
given that snapshot lists a source for the subsequent version 1.4.6-1.1:


Seems like debian itself has some homework to do wrt GPL compliance.
