Are you sure you have reloaded the configuration?

SOURCE_IP always inserts IP addresses, as the following snippet shows:

        case M_SOURCE_IP: {
                char *ip;
                
                if (msg->saddr) {
                        CAST(inet_address_info, addr, msg->saddr);
                
                        ip = inet_ntoa(addr->sa.sin_addr);
                }
                else {
                        ip = "127.0.0.1";
                }
                length = append_string(dest, left, ip, strlen(ip), escape);
                break;
        }
