Actually no, because yum and apt don't use the same metadata.  The yum metadata is generated on the main download.fedora.redhat.com server (which 99.9% of the time means it is up to date), the apt metadata is generated by a third party (in this case Fedora.us).

The rhn_applet uses the yum metadata.  Most likely you have up2date and yum configured for different servers, so you are seeing the delay in updating the mirrors.
