The "yes" indicates that the event occurred - but that the date and place are not known.

If you provide a date or place, webtrees will "unselect" this for you automatically.

In estate records children are listed. From this I surmise the fact that they were born (alternatively I could have just sourced their names with no facts). No place nor date information, only a source.

Should the record reflect

1 BIRT Y
2 SOUR ...

or

1 BIRT
2 SOUR ...

The GEDCOM standard says:
- use "BIRT Y" or "DEAT Y" if there is "no date and no place". If there is a date or a place then use "BIRT" or "DEAT" without "Y".
So, if there is only SOUR then use "Y".

Herman is 100% correct. Here is the quote from the GEDCOM Standard:

All GEDCOM lines have either a value or a pointer unless the line contains subordinate GEDCOM lines. In other words the presence of a level number and a tag alone should not be used to assert data (i.e. 1 DEAT Y should be used to imply a death known to have happened but date and place are unknown, not 1 DEAT ).
