Correct.  The way to think about it is, for the content on the master
mirrors, there is a corresponding URL
(e.g. http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel) which takes you to a
mirror which is up-to-date with that content.  It's not really a
random mirror, it follows the same rules as that of any other Fedora
content mirror (up-to-date; then ordered by preferred netblock, same country,
same continent, global).
