16 Forester, 30k miles - replace Front & Rear differential gear oil?

Signed up for regular oil change at my local shop. They said I need to replace Front & Rear differential gear oil.
I looked at Subaru maintenance schedule and its only indicates it just needs to be inspected. What are the signs that diff oil needs to be changed at 30k miles?

There is no call for replacement at 30k miles. Inspection only.

If you are repeatedly towing you fit the severe driving category for the differentials as a maintenance item and then the replacement interval is required every 15k miles.
