2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Question: Oil pan eroded! Is this unusual??

Noticed an oil spot on my garage floor where i park my 2004 GC-"Limited" (8 cylinder). Barley 80,000 miles & no off road stuff.
Took into to the dealer as it was due for an oil change & filter. (I thought maybe the oil drain plug got "stripped")
Service Dept said the oil pan was eroded. ~$800.00 to replace it.
I am wondering IF the Wisconsin winters with snow & salty roads & car washes that advertise "underbody flushing" caused the oil pan to erode?
