No 33K isn't unusal for rear brakes because it depends on what driving has been done.
However I strongly suggest you go to an Indy as mentioned above and have them check the pad thickness.
The BMW pad computer isn't perfect and you might or might not need pads.
I would go with OEM pads if your car is a 2009 or older since they don't dust but if a 2007 like mine or a 2008 I would go with ceramic pads like Akebono or Cool Carbons which will not dust much but still have good brake modulation...
