Nope, we (mirror.nsc.liu.se) get those packages from the CentOS 
msync-dvd mirrors. I just verified that the files are present on both 
centose and centosj3 which is the ones our rsync usually hit.

However I think having debuginfo packages for the kernel in the main 
repository would really be a good thing as tools like oprofile and 
systemtap (both in base) need kernel-debuginfo to be usable.
