It seems no proper source tarball is available on PyPI, only a "wheel":


The importer uses those to extract requirements.txt, and apparently
returns the wheel hash when it fails to find a proper source.  That is
probably a bug.

In this case it is probably easiest to download the source from the
upstream repository, or ask the maintainer to upload a tarball.
