You're correct that you don't need to verify the integrity of the download as the torrent does that natively. That said, it speaks nothing to the authentication. But that's your call.

Yes, that's where I got them as well, yet I'm unable to replicate the behavior that you're encountering. :?

That's certainly the intent. And also why authentication is leveraged for confirmation.
