I have seen many timing chain cars and the sprockets centers are plastic and fail, not sure if the subaru timing spocket is plastis or what, but yeah there is not much more benefit. T-belts have a life span, as do the pulleys, bearings etc.

No you dont.
Camshaft Belt (timing belt) 2.5L 4 cylinder
(note: 6 cyls have timing chain, should not need replacement)
You may not need to replace the chain itself, but the tensioner assemblies do wear with mileage, as do the sprockets, and any idlers or guides that may be used (especially if plastic parts are used).
It's good practice to replace tensioners and other chain guide components and at least check the chain for wear every 100k miles, even if Subaru doesn't say you need to. Does Subaru say to just replace the water pump, oil pump, tensioner or idlers for the belt engines?
