We don't really get any information from PXE.  Once you're booted, it's out of the picture and anaconda has very little knowledge about that you ever did it besides what interface may have been involved.  I don't believe we have any way of discovering any more information than that.

If you want anaconda to automatically use the repo, you need to add repo=<URL> to the arguments in your PXE config file.
