This could all be solved quite simply, if someone were to ask Harve Bennett or Nicholas Meyer, what their intentions were.
It's in the script!

RELIANT
The WHINE increases to fever pitch, then: she goes!

EXT. MUTARA NEBULA - MASTER EFFECT

As Reliant goes, so goes the nebula. The "Genesis Effect" WE SAW in its earliest experiments, now seems familiar on a gigantic, cosmic scale.

The blinding flash at first, followed by the same tumbling turbulence of the miniature test. It is awesome.

231 INT. ENTERPRISE BRIDGE 231
The bridge doors open and Carol appears. Instinctively she draws near her son. Finally, Kirk turns, sees Carol --

KIRK
Reduce speed. My God, Carol. Look at it.

ON SCREEN and INTERCUT -- GENESIS TUMBLES and starts evolving. A moment in history.
Later:

Then:

EXT. SPACE 246
The Enterprise passes the new planet in all its beauty.
The scene takes place "EXT. MUTARA NEBULA". "... a gigantic, cosmic scale." No mention of it involving Regula nor its space station.

The novelization makes it even more explicit.

The script says this about the Genesis Cave and its light source:
A huge cavern. Kirk is actually standing at the middle of it. Space extends vastly above and below his point of view. Like Eden, lush growth everywhere, water- falls, and a cobalt blue sky high, high above where a round orb glows sending light and warmth downward.
Who cares what's in the script or the novelization. If it's not shown or stated on-screen it didn't happen.
