Yes, tlnet/tlpretest does NOT contain the sources of the binaries.

Which is the correct process.

That depends mostly on when our builders have provided binaries.
I guess that all of the binaries now in TL tlpretest, and thus in the
texlive.tlpdb) are built after the last source changes.

In any case, as a distributor (SuSE) what you are, you should build your
own binaries and add a proper prefix by adding
  --with-banner-add=/SuSE       (or similar)
and most likely also
The set of binaries you then get in inst/bin/* can be used as is, and
are with 99% based on the same sources with the binaries we distribute
in TL ourselves.

Does that help?

All the best
