They are currently only offered via http, although ftp and rsync may be offered in the future.
These are the Debian and Ubuntu mirror pages listing mirrors.wikimedia.org to confirm it as official:
As of May 2019 they are hosted on sodium.wikimedia.org.
The relevant Puppet class is modules/role/manifests/mirrors.pp.
Monitoring and debugging
There are 2 Icinga checks called "Ubuntu mirror in sync with upstream" and "Debian mirror in sync with upstream" respectively.
If one of these alerts you should check on sodium what happens if you manually run the check commands, "/usr/local/lib/nagios/plugins/check_apt_mirror /srv/mirrors/ubuntu" / "/usr/local/lib/nagios/plugins/check_apt_mirror /srv/mirrors/debian".
Also you can run the actual sync command manually but make sure to run it was the user "mirror", so "[sodium:~] $ sudo -u mirror ftpsync".
Furthermore, you can check /etc/ftpsync/ftpsync.conf to see which upstream hosts we are rsyncing from and look at /var/log/ftpsync/ to check logfiles for errors.
