Well usually the FAF is co-located with a ground based transmitter (Outer marker, NDB, VOR, etc.) so there is a good chance of that disturbed ground being something. I tried to look for that on Google Earth, but it's really hard to tell. 3.5 miles out could be a little close, but it's not unheard of. Other than a ground based transmitter being co-located there are only 2 other ways I can think of to define a fix. One would be to use two radials from different transmitters to form an intersection and the other would be to plug one directly into a GPS. So like I said, without seeing the approach plates themselves or seeing what equipment is in a JANET we can only make educated guesses.
