Assuming you're getting full routes from this provider, I wouldn't be surprised if the multihop is required because their router you're connected to doesn't have or can't handle full BGP routes.

There is a fairly large Tier 1 US provider who does exactly this.

I imagine that this allows them to build out their network using cheap L3 (think 3550's or even 3560's) switches for their customer interfaces with a few "route servers" in core pops and a number of beefy border routers.
