Currently, we're working on optimizing a website for search engines. Would you advise adding to the XML sitemap the URLs of the pages that are being redirected, or the redirect target URLs?
In my opinion, I should exclude the redirects, but I don't know what the best practice is.

You have to exclude the redirected URLs. Having too many duplicate urls/content is not good.
