No, these files are never obtained from mirrors when
installing. The URL that is used to obtain the mirror list is stored in
those files so there is a chicken/egg problem with doing that. Having said
that, I seem to remember the foundation might have been auto-directing
hits to those files for the main release repository to AWS for better scalability.
