Maybe the PO installed those after the rivets got sloppy? Just a quess but that hardware says DIY to me.

There are many other DIY fixes for the rivets getting loose. The one above shows stainless bolts........would not be my first choice. One is not worried about rust. . Coming loose or not strong enough big concern as we have seen first hand....
