We've designed the build process to be reproducible. In practice, this means that anyone can verify that these exact binaries were produced from the corresponding source code commits. For more about the philosophy and importance of this feature see reproducible-builds.org.
For instructions on how to reproduce those binaries, see "README.md" inside the archive, as well as the in-depth guide.
