CXXConstructExpr is only used when implicitly generating constructor calls, so it doesn't ever represent anything that's been written directly in the source. If an object construction is written in the source, you'll see a CXXTemporaryObjectExpr, which has a TypeSourceInfo that will include any qualification.
For CXXNewExpr, there are two potential qualifiers. The first is the qualifier on the type name, which will be part of the TypeSourceInfo for the allocated type. The second is the (optional) global qualifier ('::') that can precede 'new'. If present, the source location of the '::' will be the starting location of the expression, IIRC.
