I have never heard of the plugs, but I do know that mud and dirt will build up ...up in the top of the wheel well and hold moisture which in turns will eventually rust them out. My 97 was bad, had to cut it out, there was mud stuck from the kid who had it before and never cleaned it out ( as well as anywhere, mud was caked on the underside and rear bumper was packed and rusted through ) When I cut the bad parts out there was also factory sealant which was like a foam/sponge that filled in the gaps which just as well trapped moisture. So, I think the guy pulled your strings a bit just to make a sale as well as an excuse for the rust. After repairing mine I sprayed the underside with bedliner/undercoating to prevent furter rust or at least slow the process.
