Default resr brakes

The rear brakes on both of my Bonneville'* appear to not be working. The rotors have developed rust on them. Calipers and pads are not that old. Is there a reason these are not auto adjusting? The parking brakes are not hooked up on either one.

Two cars' worth of this at the same time?

Does the brake pedal go down a lot before any brakes engage?

Is the brake reservoir empty?

Is the [brake] light on?

Is rust building up on the swept surface of the rotor or just the edge?
