I see that your mirror is actually listed for China :

 curl -4 'http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?repo=os&arch=x86_64&release=7&cc=cn'

So now, if your nodes are having a fastest link to another mirror in
that list, they'd use the fastest one and not the nearest one.
As we don't track incoming ASN, we don't associate ASN and mirrors in
the list : the logic for mirrorlist is just to return a list of
current/up2date mirrors in the country, and limited to 10 mirrors
(selected randomly in the DB if there are more than 10 current ones)
