Inaccurate Brake Wear on Idrive?

Guys,

Good morning. I randomly decided to check the service due on my front and rear brakes and found that my fronts were not due for 28000 miles and my rears were not due for 30000 miles. My car has 30k miles on it and my SA told me that I have only about 2mm left on the fronts and about 5mm on the back. Why does my idrive not accurately reflect the actual wear on the pads?

I appreciate your inputs.

Thank You.

I think iDrive shows time-based service for brakes, not wear based. It can't measure the brake wear. It just marks the passage of time (I think).
