Ha ha ha, you got me. I should have realized that I guess just the 2 side by side I assumed were the new ones. It is obvious when you think about it.

Is that lip on both sides of the disc or only one side.

If it is only on one side then you are not cleaning your bobbins enough to let the outer disc portion float a bit.
The bobbins do look about crusty and rusted up a bit

If it is on both sides then that is normal wear if you have HH grippy pads

The lips are on both sides of the discs and at the outside and inside edges, the area the pads have been contact with the discs are worn with lips on either side. Never really seen that before, I've had bikes that have done 70K miles on one set of discs. As you say it may be the pad material that contributed to excessive wear.
