No you won’t put source maps in prod, but in test or uat where it’s close to prod, but I don’t assume you put console.log in prod either, or wait for how many minutes your build will take for each debugging session
There were times I did put console.log() (or equivalent) to production - to debug a particularly difficult bug, that only appeared on production for very specific users. We managed to finally track the bug by log analysis.
