Jeanneau Keel Bolts Glassed Over

We are seriously considering a 1998 Jeanneau 42 CC. On a recent inspection, the bilges were exceptionally clean but the keel bolts were individually glassed over. Was this a factory construction practice in 1997 or is someone covering something up?

GibSeas in the 90ies had that too...don't know if it's a good thing or not, most likely not, but maybe somebody has experience either way...

I confirm, running in several manufacturers.
it is not a good thing else, it is better to have a visible access to the bolts and to be able to check if leaks and condition of bolts

On my Dufour Gib sea from 2003 they where also glassed in. PO chipped two of them clean to check the status of them. Looked good and I haven't been doing anything else to them since I bought the boat
