It sounds to me like they are making an uninformed guess.

Pad wear is a function of the resilience of the pads you use and your driving habits. Unless those technicians drive around with you and check the pads all day then there is no way in hell for them to tell the wear rate of your pads. There is no tool to my knowledge that does it either, this is one of the reasons why mercedes has a wear indicator for the pads.
