I see you worked that out, and you're correct. The point being that
there is no non-US content in the NONUS jigdo files, so they can be
published in the US. It's only when you come to reassemble them that
you need to go to the non-us sites for the packages.

The reason is, that on the master sites there is a directory at the
same level as the jigdo directory that you are wondering about, called
"snapshot" which contains a snapshot of the files required to build
the jigdos, so that if some file on the main archive changes, there
will always be a copy of it available.
Obviously, there's not much point rsyncing the snapshot, so I've set
up a copy of the 3.0_r1 directory with that missing, but it seemed to
make sense to keep the structure the same.
You can see what I'm on about here:
