Default Pre employment medical exam

In FA for Step 2 CS, 3rd Edition, Case 41, the patient is 32 yo M, no GIT or genital/sexual problems, but on pg 389, under closure, "Examinee mentioned need for a rectal exam." Is the rectal exam for all ages if it is for pre-employment, ie otherwise healthy individual?

This weird. In FA 4th edition, there is a case for preemployment checkup, rectal exam is not part of the work up.
