Diagnostics and Yamaha Outboard Service

Does anyone know if an outboard (yamaha F150a in this case) should be routinely connected to a diagnostic tool as part of a service?
I was going to send mine in for a winterise and service and was surprised when I was told that they don't connect such engines to a computer as part of a service unless diagnostics was required?
your thoughts are, as ever, appreciated.

Presumably diagnostics are only required if there is a problem to diagnose
I guess there is little to check if there are no faults

Does it use yds 1.33? If it does why don’t you buy it for 60 and plug it in whenever you like.....

What year is it? Think 1.33 covers earlier years, something like pre 2012.If engine is working fine prob not a big issue. Don't know F150, do you have an hours gauge to track hrs? I use YDS to check sensors, settings and any codes flagged, but probably only if I think I have a problem not necessarily when I'm servicing.
