No, I would guess that the person who put them on thought that they did not want to spend the extra$4,000 that it would cost to buy the proper sized winches and/or didn't know better. Or they found a pair of 48's on eBay and thought "Gee, How bad could they be?"

And that would lead to the next question,"What other important corners were cut to save a few bucks.
