On etherscan.io there is a contract`s source code tab, where does Etherscan get this code? If developers make it available for Etherscan then is it necessary for them to public it or specifically make it available on Etherscan? enter image description here

Developers have to manually upload the code to etherscan.io and prove that it corresponds to the bytecode of the contract instance.
