Replacing the chain and sprockets every x miles/ kmís Is an advice.
What really matters is how you tread these parts.
Only riding in sunshine and lubricating / cleaning the chain regularly will last them forever (almost !)
Riding in conditions with lots of rain, mud, sand and poor maintenance will Ďhelpí your parts to last not very long.
Important is to check everything regularly, look at the form of the sprockets (teethwise) and the slack of the chain and if the chain is clean and well lubricated.

Just had my 12,000 mile service done on my 2018 G310GS. Way to expensive.... $644.00 US. That is about 10% the cost of the bike.. They did all the things in the book ... Air Filter, Oil Filter, Changed Fork Oil, Adjusted Valves, Spark Plug, Changed Engine Oil, Replaced all the gaskets and seals, Adjusted and Lubed the Chain, Serviced the Brakes ( noted I should Flush the brake fluid as it was getting black ) . The job was 4.5 hours of labor plus parts. The Service manager was nice enough to give me a quick run down of replacing the front and rear brake pads as well as all the torque specs for doing that job. Was told the chain and sprockets are in good shape and should last another 12k if I continue to maintain it.

The bike is much quieter and is a little more responsive. Not sure but my 0-60 mph times seem to be getting better. I did 0-60 today in about 6.3 seconds and shocked a 2017 5.0 liter Mustang as I got him at the light and he didn't overtake me till we hit about 75 in forth gear.
Yes I know I beat the crap out of my poor little Beemer... Oh and I call it ... The Baybe Gee eeS ( as in Baby Jesus ) I know don't say it... all I can say it takes everything I dish out and keeps coming back for more.

How much did the parts cost? Will give me an idea of what it will cost me if I do the service myself, and how long before I recoup the cost of the mandatory GS-911 OBD scan/reset tool (on my 2 Beemers).

Yup - it's an average.

If you sit with one cheek of your butt on a block of ice and the other on a hot stove, on average you're comfortable.

Agree - but most of it is labor. My Tiger Explorer is going in for its 40K mile service and it will run me close to $900 - one Tech for almost a whole day + parts & consumables.

It sucks, but it is what it is.

I found this summary on the BMW Thailand website for the 20,000 Km service on a G310 that comes in at 10,161 Baht ( 312 US Dollars). I thought that $644 is way too expensive too!
