If this is the early single row chain 102 engine then yes, they did that.
Twin row chains not usually a problem though.

Glad you got it sorted. Just wondered what sort of mileage your car has done for it to wear so badly. Never seen one that bad before, even on my previous W123 230E with just under 230k miles when I finally sold it - still running great.
