Actually MB has made it so that the chain can not get over a tooth at most crank gears. There is a ridge on the pan that is just the right distance to prevent that. Besides, it doesn't matter on gas motors, if you use proper line-up technique, where the chain is.

The only reason not to drop the chain is that it is sometimes hard to get it all back up. it can hang on things.
