Do you have downloaded the GRASS source code?

This is the Windows GRASS *binary* code, not the source code.
That's a separate package.

Note that compilation on Windows requires efforts, many more extra
packages and patience.

We definitely recommend to you to get precompiled binaries for Windows.
You could manually download r.seg here:
-> r.seg.zip

and place the content into the appropriate folders within QGIS/GRASS.
Not sure of they are compliant but worth a try.

Once QGIS is packaged with a more recent GRASS it will become easy.
