I think it's rather uncommon for companies to simply sell part of their source code.
Furthermore, as modular as their engine might be, there is a big possibility that the network code still depends on other parts of their game.

That said, there are a lot of usable, affordable network libraries out there. Chances are the company you want to buy network code from is already using one of those.

Edit: One more thing. I guess most companies won't give out network code for security reasons also. If they published their netcode it would make life for hackers and cheaters all too easy. OTOH, reverse engineering is still done. So that would most likely just hold back the cheaters for a little while.
