Guy replaced an 08 535i with new fuel/water pump, and thermostat before 40k- fishy?

Contemplating buying an 08 535i I found on craigs----guy says he replaced the fuel pump, water pump, and thermostat already and the cars only at 43k miles----isnt that extremely uncommon this early? I dont know that much about cars and this is my first BMW I am considering buying but aren't these things that dont need to be replaced until much later on IF they even need to at all? I asked him why he replaced them all and he said "why would I not when I planned on keeping the car until 100k miles and they would eventually need to be replaced"-----I plan on taking this to BMW for a $100 pre-inspection my brother was telling me about before I purchase but I was just curious regarding this
