    In a word.... yes!

    These don't get changed (typically) as part of a dealer belt change and I have seen them fail... the damper can leak and I have seen the damper sink into the alloy carrier (there will be a gap between the damper seal and the circlip) both of which lessens the travel and allows the belt to slip...

    I have seen a friends car trash a head due to this...

    These should be changed as part of a cam belt service IMO...
