Heh, have you been waiting so long for this very occasion to come? :)

how these two lines get into debian-testing-i386-DVD-1.jigdo :

  ShortInfo='Debian GNU/Linux testing "Wheezy" - Official Snapshot
i386 DVD Binary
-1 20120326-05:08 (20120326)'
  Info='Generated on Mon, 26 Mar 2012 05:20:12 +0000'

i get to

I see in jigit-1.19/libjte/jte.c the function write_jigdo_file()
which writes the line before the two lines in question:
But next it writes the line after them:
  # Template Hex MD5Sum f2840bbbed7e4734f33e4ef24db3762e

Does the libjte which is used for Debian image production differ from
the one in jigit-1.19 ?

Good question. Well no, the libjte in jigit is the same you've downloaded, however it is a debian-cd script [1] which post-process .jigdo files in order to add additional info (see input parameters of jigdo_cleanup). These data are all known prior to ISO/jigdo creation and are indeed better to be passed via option parameters to the producer itself (xorriso, resp. libjte), which is not implemented yet of course. But this is a low-priority goal, isn't it?
