your question is all wrong -

would the source IP of the packets change

packets do not have IP addresses

when the request reaches the VM which are behind the load balancer. Does the load balancer perform NATing?

a load balancer does not NAT - but in this case what would it be NAT'ing - the packets? A load balancer uses a virtual IP to route client requests to 2 or more servers using a load balancing algorithm, if you need the requests to arrive at the backend servers with their original IP address in http headers then you need to enable x-forward-for on the load balancer.
