Premature wear of brakes

My 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid has 32000 km and during inspection, I was told that the rear brakes were finished and that the problem of premature wear was common for the Fusion. Is this normal?
Ford Fusion borrows mechanical components of the Mazda6 and Mazda is known for certain problems with brakes. However, we are not aware of cases like yours. It is possible that the problem is unique to the hybrid, since it does not share its braking system with the non-hybrid version. The limited number of this model further limits information. The ideal would be to ask this question on discussion forums dedicated to Ford or to hybrids.
