They are included, see kernel-2.6.*.src.rpm.

The standard place for files needed to build third party modules
is /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build.  kernel.org kernels promote this location
for several years already.
To build 2.6 kernel modules, you just need to do:
make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd` modules
assuming current directory contains kbuild compatible Makefile and the
module you want to build.
