What would be the chances of finding a Mosin-Nagant M44 manufactured
in 1945 with the Finnish "D" stamp? This seems odd to me.

I would say it is possible if there were border skirmishes...but I doubt there were.

IMO, the possibility is about .1% that it is legit, and that is only because one never can say never. ;)

There has been sightings of a 43' M44 that has the Finnish SA on it.

I'd say that a Finn captured M44 dated 1945 would be a near impossibility since the Finns were not fighting the Soviets in 45. Most that I've heard of or seen, as well as the one that I own, are 1943. I believe a board member here has one dated 44 but that's the only one I've ever heard of. Any SA marked M44 is super rare.

Bewteeen 0 and 0 percent in my opinion. The war ended for the Finns and Soviets in August of 1944. By the time the 45's hit the front it would have been spring or late winter of 1945. No way. All reported [SA] marked m/44 carbines are dated 1943 and one 1944 is known.
