Those bolts will always be dirty, no matter how new they are. The only time you need to do this is if you are having "seizing" problems already. And even then, you will not notice any "seizing" until the brake pads wear out, and and you will see that the pads have worn unevenly. That is the only symptom of the slide pins.
Are you saying that the grease may not be dirty? Ok, the grease may not be dirty if the brakes have recently been done.
Just because the grease may be dirty does not mean that you have to change it.
I have been doing my brakes for 40 years, and have yet to hear of someone pulling the pins out to re-grease them as maintenance.
Like I said, if you really want to do this procedure and know how to do it.... Go right ahead.
Regular people should not be told that this is a necessary maintenance item.. And people should not think that they have to have this done by a mechanic or try to do it themselves..
Re-greasing the caliper slide pins is done during a brake pad replacement.....
