They only found it was corroded after they took it off and tried to replace it, so why did they take it off?
Like all tyre fitters they probably took out the valve to deflate the tyre and if its corroded the valve won't go back in and reseal - I have seen in on a number of occasions - strange but true
Also from a safety point of view they would have been responsible had the valve failed - can't blame them from coverig their backs in this world of litigation - cpould you
