no the soruce images are also published to docker/quay registryso if you are not building them today and pulling them from there it will work the same
if you are building image today there is no really different form a commandline point of view for source vs binary.
the main different is the soruce images install all the deps from pip and the servcis form the offical tarballs into a python virtual env within the contaianer image.
so unless you have explcitly set kolla_install_type: binay or the distroy you should not need to change anything hopefuly in your gobal.yaml ideally.
