All of the above looks correct to me, output below. Before submitting...
Could rename it from vlansrc to vlan+srcmac or some variation thereof if
it's desired. I tried to keep it relatively short, but it's perhaps a bit
less succinct like I have it now, and other modes include a +.

$ sudo modprobe bonding mode=2 max_bonds=1 xmit_hash_policy=0
$ sudo ip link set bond0 type bond xmit_hash_policy vlansrc
$ cat /proc/net/bonding/bond0
Ethernet Channel Bonding Driver: v4.18.0-272.el8.vstx.x86_64

Bonding Mode: load balancing (xor)
Transmit Hash Policy: vlansrc (5)
MII Status: down
MII Polling Interval (ms): 0
Up Delay (ms): 0
Down Delay (ms): 0
Peer Notification Delay (ms): 0
