Just because the rotors are smooth is no reason that they shouldn't be turned. You don't want smooth discs, you want even discs, but a little rough.

In fact, a smooth rotor will make bedding-in the pads much more difficult and raises the possibility that the pads will glaze. You want to lightly turn the rotors to rough-up their surface to improve braking and for proper bedding of the pads. A shop would lightly turn them and this will even the discs out as well as provide the necessary roughing-up. Hope this helps...
