They might, but there are cases where they did not.  The point is that
_you_ are not required to publish anything.  Offering source to everyone
who receives binaries from you satisfies your GPL obligations.  You can
ignore requests for source from anyone else.

Of course, if the possibility that someone might pass the software on
worries you, the solution is simple: don't link to GPL works.
