how does tlmgr choose the closest mirror?

I'm in DK

If I run

tlmgr -gui

and choose 'load default repository'

then I end up at utwente.nl

whereas choosing 'load default net repository'

gives me


(the same as mirror.ctan.org)

Why this difference?

And how should users know the difference between 'default repository' and 'default net repository'?
