They wouldn't without re-checking the links. But the same is true of
every link on the web. For example, I could link to a site about
salmon with the text "this is about fish" and then the linked content
can change to something about whales and I would look like I don't
realize that whales aren't fish. I think the truthfulness of
assertions (e.g. "this is an audio file to download") over time is
irrelevant to determining the best markup for making such assertions.
