Re-including list, hope that's okay.

Yes, that is correct (at least certain parts of the /usr/src
subtree are needed).

This can easily be done with freebsd-update (which I assume you
have been using to get to 10.3-RELEASE-p7): In /etc/freebsd-update.conf,
make sure you have "src" in the line

	Components src world kernel

This will install or update the sources when you run an update.
If I remember correctly, you can perform this as a "partial update"
where only the missing component will be installed.
