If someone is injured in an accident, the costs could be orders of magnitude higher - potentially 6 or 7 figures. Faced with a potential bill like that, I imagine that they'll go over the car with a fine-toothed comb. So personally, I will always declare mods.
I suppose if someone drives recklessly then they could argue it, but if you drive sensibly and stick to the speed limits at all times, there's no way it's a contributing factor to any accident.
