I don't think that the content of a module is necessarily from original 
source. In some cases it is derived from a secondary source.

And if it is from the original source, it is not necessarily true that 
an export will be even close to the original.

In the case of OSIS Bibles, the osis2mod importer is lossy. It does not 
keep everything that is in the original file. It is faithful with the 
biblical text, but not with some of the extras.

I don't know about the other importers.
