Per comments elsewhere, the car was very "happy" to have new plugs. :-)
There was some variation in plug deterioration, the rearmost pair looking pretty bagged. My suspicion is that those two, at least, were original.
Here is a photo of the passenger-side, rear:
That does look pretty worn. Do you have pics of some of the other plugs. Those rears are a B()** to get out and then get the coils back on. I wouldn't be surprised if a lazy tech didn't replace the rears.
