Hello! I found a local ad for a 2005 Les Paul Standard 50's (looks like cherry sunburst). The seller says it's all stock but lists the pickups as 57 classics. I thought the 05 Standards had Burstbuckers? Did some 05 Standards come stock with the 57 Classics?

Well my 05 Standard came with Burstbuckers but I did not like them so I swapped them out with Wolfetones.The 57 Classics are a much better pickup.That could be the case here.

Burstbucker Pro's. Not Burstbuckers. Two different animals. Burstbucker 1, 2 & 3 Un potted Have the 1 and 2 in a custom. These are what they put in the RI guitars in the early 2000's. Not the best sounding IMHO.
BB Pro bridge and neck . Beginning in 2002 through at least 2008 In Les Paul Standard. Might get a 57 in an early 2002, Not sure. Original BB Pro's Not splitable. I like 'em Have 2005's and 2006 with these pups and they sound great.

My 2012 Standard came with Pros, so they have been using em for a long time. 57's are better pickups than any BB except the Custombuckers, in my opinion.
