I tried chasing down this recall on google, stumbled across a few things but it looks like it ended in 2014. The repair manual mentions having sealant placed stategically prior to installation, no idea if that's the fix or standard practice but I've seen this in other vehicles like a Mits V6 I had with DOHC. The V6 in my last magan(Diamante) the rear bank would usually last close to 5 years and then leak.

Your vehicle is over 10 years old, if it was such an issue I expect it would have presented itself before now and who's been working on this vehicle? has noone spotted the oil leak? No drips on the ground? I'm not surprised really that they would not do this work now. Seals and gaskets fail over time, they degrade. I think it's disappointing the first mechanic did not identify the issue as needing repair the first time
