"From what I've read on that list, sterilisation seems to benefit the human community far more than the actual animals. "
Well, if a cat's going to live in a city among humans, then there had best be some benefits for humans. The reward for fitting into human society is generally a longer, safer life, featuring being well fed, cared for, diseases and accidents looked after by vets, a more pleasant environment, more attention, etc., etc.
The alternative to doing things that help the cat integrate into human society is generally negative to a cat's health, especially in urban environments.
