Having them in both source and header files results in poor documentation because the comments get appended together. So rule of thumb: only add doxygen comments in the header files. You can add normal comments in the source files if more clarification is needed there.

But make sure that the comments in the header are Doxygen comments: Those start with /**, not /*. Some of the comments you added in the header have only /* so Doxygen will ignore them. Note as well that you don't need to include the function name for Doxygen as long as the comment is immediately before the function declaration or definition.

Commit messages are important: Had the message said that it was removing duplicate comments then I wouldn't have raised the issue. On the other hand I also wouldn't have noticed that you missed the second *.
