Interpretation disk health condition

Yesterday I did my routine check over the disk tab and both of my nvme's are declared dead:

After my research about NVMe funerals I couldn't find clear indicators about the dead causes of such a nvme. I just found out that somehow the % indicator tries to predict the lifetime by write operations because of the known fact that silicion is finite.

Are there other options to get a proofing fact that it is about to die? Right now both nvmes do not have write/read errors and full spare threshold counter as seen in the screenshots. I also don't want to hesitate buying new ones because the replacement would be done by resilvering the mirror just one nvme after another with no pain.

I am greatful for responses and wish a nice day!
