I suspect that most of the disks are either System V .pkg datastreams
or cpio archives.

Since this is obviously an installable binary distribution the only
"source code" that you are going to find on it are the header files
in /usr/include and /usr/include/sys etc and, perhaps, a few example
or demo programs.

Don't bother looking for kernel source code - it isn't there.
