Please take note, oil changes won't help this issue.
Your single data point doesn't change the fact that multiple techs have noted on multiple occasions that oil changes likely would help this issue.

You're right to say that it is a design flaw that doesn't require sludge to present itself, but that flaw is exacerbated by engine oil sludge. Changing the oil more frequently will act as a prophylactic.
