The uec build output has 2 kernels and 2 initrd per arch (1 set for uec, 1 set for ec2). There is information available for each that indicates the pedigree.
a.) the manifest file for the build : the kernels come from a package inside of the image, and all packages and versions are listed here
b.) the kernel-info.txt file : this file has explicit information on where each kernel/initrd file came from.

For b, an example:
karmic-uec-i386-vmlinuz-virtual vmlinuz-2.6.31-14-generic-pae i386 linux-image-2.6.31-14-virtual 2.6.31-14.46
karmic-uec-i386-initrd-virtual initrd.img-2.6.31-14-generic-pae i386 linux-image-2.6.31-14-virtual 2.6.31-14.46
karmic-uec-i386-vmlinuz-ec2 vmlinuz-2.6.31-302-ec2 i386 linux-image-2.6.31-302-ec2 2.6.31-302.7
karmic-uec-i386-initrd-ec2 initrd.img-2.6.31-302-ec2 i386 linux-image-2.6.31-302-ec2 2.6.31-302.7

The above tab-delimited content represents:
 - file name in the build output
 - original file name in the image
 - arch
 - package from which the file came (for initrd, this is the kernel package)
 - package version

That should provide us with plenty of information to get the source for a given image.
