Each component package has it's source code available.

You can download it using
apt-get source <package-name>

Ubuntu is maintained in lots of source packages where a server builds them into binaries for convenience.

If you want to see the source code (and packaging) of a particular package, you can use:


apt-get source <package>

Some packages, such as ubuntu-restricted-extras are not entirely open-source, there may be some binary in the source package, or it may download some external material when installing.

EDIT: beaten to it, as per usual. :P
