Question 1987 300e front brake groan

There's no other way to describe it. When the brakes get warmed up there is a groaning sound when they're applied. Could the previous owner have put in non OEM pads? I had a similar problem when replacing the front pads on my girlfriend's BMW 733i, when I changed them with non OEM pads there was a groaning sound. Is there a difference in density of these pads that can cause this? Must they be matched carefully with the brake system in question? Thanks in advance for your advice.
