Depending on how bad they are, careful use of a wire brush or even a scouring pad would remove enough for an mot. If honda can tell a friend that his brake pads needs replacing with 75% remaining then a little corrosion would get them really excited if a profit can be made. That goes for all manufacturers.

Exactly, they are definitely something to check as you do not want them to fail, but chances are they're only a bit rusty and Honda are drumming up work.
Get an MOT place to have look if your not sure.

It passed its mot at honda. It was getting an over priced service at the same time it was only on the service report that said they need changing

If there was no mention on the mot then a clean up would suffice. It was probably mentioned on the service . A. To get some work from you. B. To cover their backsides.
My recently purchased car has a honda service history and I was going to carry it on until I saw what they did or didn't do for the money.
