Download the file, wait a couple of minutes, then download it
again. Then use "unzip -l" on both copies, and you'll notice the
timestamps stored inside the zip files are different. I guess they're
generating the zip file on-demand?

Sure you will. Unzip them both, then compare their contents. Can even
use "diff -ar" on both extracted directories.
