Correct; IE 10 and Firefox 19 both specifically say "file <filename> from <host of file>" and make no mention of the page/URL containing the link. Chrome 25 doesn't show the host at all in the primary UI but the "Downloads" window includes the full URL of the file, and nothing about the page containing the link.
