It's intentional: you always want to get the hash from the authoritative 
source (and not a mirror) so you can actaully verify the checksum. 
(particularly if you don't have gpg to check the signature files).
 "Alternatively, you can verify the MD5 signature (hash value) on the 
  files. Make sure you get these files from the main site, rather than 
  from a mirror. The above [MD5] links automatically retrieve the 
  signature files from the main site."
