Pretty much any Samsung is going to be susceptible to "SDS" (Sudden death syndrome) Because Samsung is just "high quality stuffs".

I ultimately found the m4a files in /mnt/extSdCard/Android/data/com.amazon.mp3/files/Music The trick, however, is that they are hidden files. They do not appear when viewing the folder with either the native file manager or RootExplorer (even when "Show Hidden Files" is checked). They are found only by using RootExplorer to search the device for "m4a" ...

Yes, those apps are stock apps in the German-localized ROMs for the Galaxy S3 (the i9300 version). Likely they were there in the original ROM but you uninstalled them and later forgot about it.
