Nah, them's just "air brakes".

I've seen them wore through one side of a rotor into the cooling fins, but that pic takes the cake.

I had a guy next door to me who specialized in Audis. He did a lot of the old 100's in the eighties and they had an inboard disc brake on the fronts. It was front wheel deive and the darn discs where like on an XKE rear on the inside of the axles. Needless to say, people would let them go because they were so expensive to change. I remember one where the rotors were worn all the way thru with the "pads" (what was left of them) touching each other and a RING created by the outside of the rotor just hanging there on the caliper!
