Thank you, I am aware of the general location. As I said, I already looked there and it seems 
the package in question simply does not exist:

1) Directory listing [1] shows that kernel-4.18.0-80.11.2.el8_0.src.rpm [2] does not exist.
    In fact, the BaseOS/Source/SPackages contains only two src.rpms of the currently seven 
    kernel-4.18.* rpms available in the Packages.

    [1]: http://vault.centos.org/8.0.1905/BaseOS/Source/SPackages/
    [2]: http://vault.centos.org/8.0.1905/BaseOS/Source/SPackages/kernel-4.18.0-80.11.2.el8_0.src.rpm

2) dnf download --source fails:
  $dnf download --source kernel-0:4.18.0-80.11.2.el8_0
  enabling AppStream-source repository
  enabling BaseOS-source repository
  enabling extras-source repository

  No package kernel-4.18.0-80.11.2.el8_0.src available.

  Same works for a kernel-4.18.0-80.7.1.el8_0 (one of the two kernel src.rpms that do exist in SPackages).
