Well, they're unit tests, so you're testing units, not multiple units or entire systems (other tests exist for that).
And from the perspective of the unit you're testing it doesn't really matter if IRepository.GetData gets the data from a database, a service or a mock.
From the perspective of the test is does matter since the database and service can't be controlled from the test scenario, but a mock can.
A mock will always return x when the input is y, a database or service might not.
And then the thing you're actually testing can always use value x which should always return value z, which can be asserted.
// Contrived example:
public int AddOneToDbField(IRepository repo)
{
   int dbField = repo.GetNumber(); // This should be mocked.
   return dbField + 1; // This should be tested and asserted.
}
If you want to test your repository you should do stuff like integration testing, although I've also seen unit tests that connect to databases.
But if you're testing your mocks you might not be doing it right Blush | :O
