No. The behavior does depend on the way you evaluate it. There is no
feasible way to insert source references into the function if you
evaluate it line by line. Only C-c C-c, C-c C-f,  C-c C-l and C-c C-b
are inserting source by default. C-c C-c inserts only when function is

You can set ess-inject-source to t (see the docs in ESS dev). Then all
the evaluation commands in ESS will inject the source references. But
that comes with a price - you won't be able to accumulate the code as in
your example with C-RET.
