Can't confirm or deny this as I don't have a manual in hand but I do know that I had my service indicator pop up on my car for service. I knew I was due for an oil change and figured that was reason for the notification. Needless to say I was surprised when my SA put the key in the reader at his computer and said I was also due for new spark plugs.

Something in the system notified my SA that the spark plugs were due for a change and as I noted above, this happened with just over 23,000 miles on the car.
