It's possible that it was modded, but any number of items equally as possible -- depends on the state of course, but I have seen Carfax say "failed emissions inspection" even if the reason for failure had nothing to do with actual emissions (example: tires worn out, crack in windshield, turn signal bulb out, tint too dark, etc).

A few years ago I purchased a Jetta that had been stolen from the dealership and recovered next day. Had no issues with the car, and no issues getting it insured.
