Maintenance Question

I noticed in my Stelvio owner's manual that they want you to replace the spark plugs every 30,000 miles. That seems absolutely ridiculous to me. Modern engines can easily go far longer than that on a set of spark plugs. Does anyone know the reason for this? Do turbocharged engines require more frequent spark plug replacement?

I believe so. Same with my twin turbo 911 is required in 4 years or 40K miles. We recently acquired Stelvio for my wife and I had them include the first 3 year maintenance service for free.
