Hello and welcome to Just Answer.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to assist you with your question.

He may have noticed the shocks were damp around the piston/shock body.
If the dampness was fresh and not covered in dust, you may have a case to have them replaced.
But if this was caused by normal wear and tear it may be difficult to get them replaced under insurance.

The mechanic could be trying to do you a favor by giving you a heads up on it.
