You're just in the wrong country, they're available pitted and without stuffing in Spain. They're sold in plastic baggies, in cans, or in large plastic bottles which are generally then resold by weight; they last pretty much indefinitely so long as you don't open the container and keep it in a dark place. The most common stuffing here is anchovies, pimiento is probably the second one.

And Colibri, only by 7 years , the maximum official shelf life for foodstuffs being 5 years by law even if it's not true in practice.
