Is it neccessary to maintain the docking ports of the ISS?

Inspection, cleaning, lubrication, replacement of worn out parts like O-ring seals?

Where are the seals, on both sides or only at the side of the docking space ships? If there are no O-rings at the ISS side, you don't need to replace them.

According to this schedual, the quest airlock does require maintenance.

"Airlock Cooling Loop Flush"

Not sure what an "Airlock Cooling Loop Flush" is but a google search reveals it has been done multiple times in the past.

    $\begingroup$ The airlock isn't a docking port. $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble Dec 26 '20 at 19:07
  • $\begingroup$ Are they asking specifically about the docking adapters? $\endgroup$ – CryptoJones Dec 26 '20 at 19:09
