Is changing out the firing pin for a new steel on a mandatory thing?

So as I understand it there's no reason to replace it until it breaks.

Becareful with the aftermake firing pins. They disable the decocker. When you decock the gun the hammer will hit and move the firing pin.

i never dry fire mine, and the pin has lasted 500 rnds so far

My firing pin broke while I was firing. SO, into the case it went. I bought an aftermarket FP from Makarov.com. Mine did not disable the decocker but they do caution to not trust the decocker.

Do not dryfire the gun at all! The cast FPs are junk!

I have had a few and even dry fired them before I knew better. I have never broken one but I have heard many people have. I no longer dry fire mine but I don't see the need to replace the pins.
