The LaTeX bundle contain both the LaTeX language grammar and  
auxiliary information about what parts of the document spell checking  
should be disabled for.

If you did not make any LaTeX customizations (which you want to keep  
at least) then remove both bundles (to reset to the defaults) --  
renaming will only do that if you rename (move) them out of the  
Bundles folder.

The same goes for the Source bundle.

The scope (shown with ctrl-shift P) is what name the language grammar  
[1] assigns to that particular language element.

The scopes you quote sounds correct. There is then a preferences item  
[2] in the Source bundle (named “Spell Checking: Disable for Source”)  
which has “source, constant, keyword, storage, support, variable” as  
scope selector [3].

This should cause spell checking to be disabled for all these scopes.  
Something like \newcommand should be affected by this, as it has  
scope storage.* (which is in the scope selector to disable spell
