Yes, someone does know.
Are you entitled to this information?
Can others 'make up' stuff regarding the seller motivation that you will believe?
Standard responses: Need bigger/smaller home. Moving closer to family. Any response that does not reveal URGENCY would be appropriate.
Do you want to make your purchase strategy based on fabrication or the real data?
Consult the real estate professional you have hired and present a clean market value offer. If you don't you'll be asking, "Why are sellers rejecting your purchase offers?"

Q--Does anyone know why the current owners are selling?

A--Home requirements changes with time, like birth in family, death in family. New job, loss of job.

Marriage, divorce. Children went to college. The home owner thinks value has gone down, why to pay mortgage.

People buy bigger house, and then they realize that they need smaller house.

Current owners are mostly selling because they are thinking that the prices have gone up and this is the right time to sell.

If it was because of a Termite infestation or a broken foundation, it would be disclosed in the documents.
If it is because of retirement or a death in the family, it would fall under "None-Ya".

Because they want to. That shouldn't matter at this point if your wanting to buy the house. Reasons will be disclosed during the 17 days grace period after your offer is accepted. Get with an agent and write it up.
