I know you are supposed to but I have only drained them when I was replacing them. At that point they are usually full of rust where the drain is. Don't know if that runs throughout the tank.

Oh my, should I have my maintenance guy do that? I didn’t know that was a thing and I’ve owned some houses in my life🤔damn.

Life is too short to do every little thing that is recommended. Plus, sometimes I think the more you mess with stuff, the faster it breaks or malfunctions.

Oddly enough, when I was a Quality Engineer for a large manufacturing organization, I determined that most problems occurred shortly following scheduled preventive maintenance.
