First, welcome aboard, and congrats on the new car!
I'd ask a few questions here. Who is the warranty through? The dealer? Some aftermarket company? I've never heard of a rip/tear/burn protection plan, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.
If you're a slob, or have kids, I'd certainly do *something* with the fabric. I don't know exactly what's involved there, but it's entirely possible you might be able to do just as good a job yourself with a couple of cans of Scotch-Guard or similar. (I'm contemplating that myself.)
As for the "paint sealer," as it's often called, I dunno. You live in an area where they salt the crap out of the roads, so it might be a good thing. How long do finishes usually go before surface rust sets in? Probably people from your side of the continent should chime in here.
Remember two things: 1) all this stuff is negotiable. There's a very high markup on it. 2) The big print giveth, the fine print taketh away. Read carefully.
