Flue collector "ceramic fiber" strip replacement

Before heating season starts, I really want to get a close look at our boiler sections from above. (Peerless 64-12 installed 2009). I doubt that anyone did so before we moved here. Are you supposed to replace the gasket that seals the flue collector to the top of the boiler any time the collector is removed? I've replaced them when they've come apart during removal of the collector. And I've replaced them when a leak has been detected. But I wonder if it's one of those things that is best replaced as a matter of course.

Thank you.
