Rear Brake Pads

Got warning rear brake pads need replaced. Front show still got 24,000 to go and car has done 25,000 from new with no change. Is it not strange for rear to go way before front based on it being an auto?

Took it to BMW and they checked it (grudgingly) and said yep need replaced. The key fob reader was way out showing 36,000 on front and rear out by a 1,000 and he could not offer an explanation.

Went to kwik fit (UK) and they gave BS story that if they strip it to check it and dont have spares in stock im stuck lol, lazy so and so.

Anyone had similar experience with brake pads and faulty reading from key fob?
