Okay, being a public repos is unfortunately not an option for me. The
problem I am trying to solve is installing on machines not able to
access to internet, and try to avoid using a shared drive.

If it is a shared drive, then you can set up a local package repository and use it for you MiKTeX updates. A local package repository can be a local network resource: \\ComputerName\SharedFolder\Resource

Does the mpm.exe look at any local file trying to validate the URL?

No, it contacts the web service at api2.miktex.org to get the list of valid URLs.

What does it do when it cannot reach the internet to lookup the list
of mirrors?

It fails.
