Oddly, the right side disc seems to be in at least solid shape.

that looks legit. you can have bad enough pads and cheap enough rotors that you'll chew the rotors up before the pads... some race compound pads can't be used with stock rotors or they'll eat them alive. i see this as totally plausible.

calipers could stick, pads wore out faster - there are all kinds of ways this could happen.
