If its old folklore, it would not be in the manual. What is old folklore is having to change the oil after the break in period. In the old says, engine manufacturing technique were not as precise as today. The break in period produce some metal shavings. Today's engine is made to much tighter tolerance and produce much less metal shavings, therefore, no need to change the oil after the break in period.
