Another question about exhaust fan power

After our tenant's exhaust fan went kaput, I opened it up to take a look at it and check voltage

It struck me as odd that the exhaust fan & light each had plugs that went into a built receptacle inside the metal framing. I don't know if I'm describing this right. I went upstairs and opened up the exhaust fan in our upstairs bathroom and see that it also has a plug & receptacle.

I would have thought the fan & light would be hardwired in. Is this usual? And if so, why?

Another question about exhaust fan power

That is pretty common on most newer style fans. Makes it easy to pull the fan & motor assembly out to replace or clean.
