Although the source code is not directly linked to. The binaries are
clearly labelled with the git checkout hash used as the source to build
them, and can therefore be obtained by checking out that hash from the
main git repo.

Since the Evermeet site is linked to from the main ffmpeg.org one,
presumably this enough to comply with the requirements of the GPL, at
this stage.

If you are wishing to redistribute with source, then You will need to
checkout the relevant version from the main repo.

All AIUI, and IANAL.
