I strongly suspect that they have made little or no modifications to most core system components.

Seriously, modifying a component maintained by a third party increases maintenance workload and isn't likely to be done unless it is absolutely necessary.

Still, they need to offer to distribute the source code to any GPL'd components they distribute as binaries, whether or not they have modified them. Not having modified them makes it easier, though.
