I agree with you I would change the oil too . But maybe under his conditions he has figured out the extra time to do so just doesnt make enough difference. He gambled and it worked for him.
I surprised those Briggs lasted 600 hrs that way, many on here claimed the briggs would not hold up over 300 hrs. I know mine always starts on the 1st pull and doesn't use oil yet.
