Default How fast do new CV axles get rust on them?

I'm sure someone here knows, because there's so many people that like cars, too.

I had some CV axles replaced on a car. This was in October. I had to look under my car because maybe a rear brake or something is making an annoying sound, not sure. Well I looked at the axles and the shafts have rust spots on them here and there. The boots are brand new and look it. I paid like $1k for the job so I'm sure it included the two assemblies that around $250-350ea, as it said axle replacement. But now I'm not sure? There's no snow here, not on the coast, and only a tiny bit of rain recently.

When I have snow tires put on they may check, but I thought someone here could comment so I can make my own judgement. I probably should have done it myself but I don't have a lift etc, so it's a big PITA for me.

Were the CV joints replaced or the whole assembly?

That's what I'm trying to get at. It looks like just the joints, but I paid for full replacements the way it's written and price.
