Don't bleed the brakes on MB?

I don't know why anyone would say that, especially a mechanic. Brake fluid is "Hygroscopic" meaning that it absorbs moisture over time. Most manufacturers agree that every 2 years you should change your brake fluid.

On another note, Coolant flushing recommendations seem to vary from every 2-5 years.
