Just had the 2nd service done at 2 year old and 7400 miles. On a service plan, so no charge. Noted that the oil and filter, cabin filter and brake fluid all changed. Spark pligs are good for100,000 miles or 10 years. Air filter 4 years.
Extraordinary changes. I used to change my dirty air cleaner and re-gap the spark plugs every 5000 miles. Never changed my brake fluid. etc etc.

Why is that? My 2001 BMW motorcycle has non adjustable plug gaps, twin earth electrodes. The top quality NGK plugs need replacing every 5000 miles or so , because of electrode erosion.

Oh yes, I know all that. It's just that we never used to change brake fluid routinely. Not part of dealer services either. Mind you, with slave and master cylinder failures being not unusual, brake fluids did get changed.
I'd brake fade only once in my 52 years of driving. That was in my Austin Maxi coming down off the Cat and Fiddle.
I changed the brake fluid and bought those auto bleed nipples. Iirc the brakes were sticking on due to a rusting master cylinder. The cylinder was in the centre of the brake servo and when you opened the bonnet, any rain water poured into it. Happy days.
