Are there any fittings to grease during an oil change?

2001 OB 2.5L auto.

Just wondering if there are any zerk fittings I should be greasing at the same time as changing the oil on my Subie?

Thanks.

It's only weird because it's not normal.

I have not seen any zerk fittings on my '00OBW. I think the only vehicles that still have them are heavy duty vehicles like pickup trucks and such. Lube for life is definitely the trend in the last decade or so.

No zerks on my MY02 OBS that the naked eye can see.

There were still plenty of vehicles out there with grease fittings 3 years ago when I was working in the garages, but Subaru's weren't on the list. At least, not with OEM parts. I have seen some aftermarket replacement parts with fittings, though.
