No, I suspect for security reasons and to tightly control the
freebsd-update release process, mirrors of FreeBSD Update repositories
are not allowed, and your IP was throttled because you were walking the
tree with wget on a regular basis.
I'd suggest talking to cperciva at FreeBSD.org (who maintains
freebsd-update) but based on past conversations, he's been reluctant to
increase the number of FreeBSD Update servers unless it needs additional
capacity. (and even then there's additional restrictions)
