Timing chain 2006 Sonata

Does anyone know if the timing chain/chains need to be replaced at a certain mileage like cars with timing belts?

The main benefit of timing chains over timing belts is that they typically never need to be replaced throughout the lifetime of the engine. Rarely one will fail but there is no regular maintenance that needs to be performed on timing chains.
