Well now I this confirms me these are original ... But since the previous owner bothered with them, I'm going to check if they still hold the correct value with my multimeter (it can measure the capacity of small caps)

1 thing you could try if you haven't, look on the back of the boards of the capacitors that were changed and clean any flux residue if there is any. Alot of people don't realise but depending on what flux they used it could be conductive and affecting what the caps give out
