No, they should certainly be visible in mapsource (I am using 6.15.6).
My etrex also does show marine stuff. So if you are using a recent
mapsource and stuff isn't showing up, perhaps I have made a mistake and
something needs fixing?

The morse and flash info only shows up in mapsource if you look at the
POI properties dialog.
