I don't know or use FreeCAD, but it looks like the source code is
updated quite regularly on their GitHub repository:

The latest changes seem to date back to several hours.

I'd say these are the sources from which the development binaries are
built (at least this is what is usually done).

My understanding of the sentence

is that the FreeCAD team don't bother archiving the sources by
themselves, given that one can always access the latest version
on GitHub.
