rear brakes wearing faster than fronts?

I had all rotors and brake pads changed at the same time about a year ago, but the rear pads need replacing already and the fronts still have a lot of life left. I always thought the fronts wear out faster since most of the braking power comes from the front. What could be causing this?

Thanks in advance

No LSD and DSC will do that.

1 year for a set of pad is low. Would the computer detect stuck pistons?
