A scenario in which customers might care about the source code could be one in which your software handles customer AND client data and the client (the one using your software) needs to in some way advertise the security and fitness of the software to safely handle their customer data.
Advertising that it is publicly available and allowing new clients to hire anyone they like to review it might be advantageous. It allows clients to provide customers with an assurance that though they outsource the service to a 3rd party, (your software company) they have an independent review of the open source platform they are using and can offer a higher degree of assurance than a similar company outsourcing that service to a closed source platform.
