The seismic source type was a way for older codes to generate MCE values. This was used in the 2001 California Building Codes (UBC 97) and older codes.
With that said, the seismic maps found in ASCE 7-05 already have these factors included within them. This value has no real use for solving the problem. It might be just a leftover from the previous versions of the SEAOC books.
I hope this helps.
