Full source of released maps

You can check out the full source of all maps and supporting prefabs shipped in the final game here \Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life Alyx\content\hlvr\maps\release

You're not expected to recompile the release maps. The full lighting and audio calculations would likely take an excessive amount of time on a home PC - but you'll be able to add content at an entity level using the new Map Extensions feature.
