TeX Live Utility guarantees that the mirror from which you update/install
is the same one you're currently using for listing, and when the 
update/install is done, it refreshes the list using that same mirror.
This greatly reduced user confusion when using mirror.ctan.org.  If
you don't like the current mirror, you always can get another one by 
pressing the refresh button, as many times as you like :).

It's easier for me to save that temporary state across each launch of
tlmgr, though I have to launch it so many times that I wouldn't quite
say with Norbert that tlpdb loading is not an issue...
