I know you said Dennis but allow me. I have been studying Sprinter emission operating principles for two-years and, other than using fresh, clean DEF, have read zero MB maintenance publications related to exhaust after treatment system.

From my studies, learning the Sprinter's operational "Sweet Spot" as described by others is the only way to ensure long emission component service life. Dennis had described it as ran the vehicle like you stoled it.
