Do I ever need to replace the chain cam?

My 2008 Volkswagen Golf has a chain cam, which the dealer says will last the lifetime of the 1.6 engine. Is this true?
Yes, this is a chain cam engine. But the chain will only last the life of the car if the engine oil and filter are changed regularly, by which I mean at least every year or every 10,000 miles, whichever comes first.
