     In sysinst, the menu asking you what you want to install has
an item labelled, "Full Install".  Without further clarification,
I would expect this is what is meant, since that would be the most
natural guess.

     To answer the original poster's question, no a full install
does not include the sources.  On the "Custom Install" menu there
are check boxes for sources (both base and X); however, most install
media don't include the source sets.  You can find the sources for
everything included with NetBSD on the ftp server.  For example,
the path for the 9.2 sources is /pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-9.2/source/sets .
Extract the tar balls with "tar xpf <set> -C /".
