Perhaps the previous owner used the old trick of finding new nuts because he had to change a wheel out on the road at night and lost all the wheel nuts down a grid.

Used one nut from the other 3 wheels to hold the wheel on..

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !

sounds like someone has had some locking nuts on there and wanted to keep them upon selling.
