Traveler's Beware quest question

Alright this might sound a bit weird but I’m kinda confused about this and it’s bugging me for a while now :blush:

Traveler’s beware is the quest for Barrowholm to rescue Thomas and Maurene.
These two NPCs are always found in the same two cages. There are other cages nearby which are always empty. So here is the question: Do I remember correctly that at some point after AoM release it was possible for them to spawn in the other cages too?

Could be wishful thinking on my part but I think I’ve rescued Thomas from this cage at least once:

I might be completely wrong about this so I’m asking here if I remember that correctly. And if I do, why was it changed.

In any case, I’d like to suggest to make this quest a bit more interesting by randomizing the NPC positions. I know it won’t make much of a difference since the cages are pretty close together so I’m sorry for wasting everyone’s time. Well I better get going now, my friend Ulgrim needs help with remembering something as well :wink:
