In my experience most people spend money on repairs in completely different areas of the vehicle. Like seals failing, things with bearings, electric motors and other electronics, plastic parts degrading.
Say you take a 10yr/100K mile time period. Sure, you can change your coolant, your ATF, your brake fluid, your differential(s) fluid. How much would it cost to do all of that regularly (not DIY) for the average person? At least $1500-2000.
So if you follow that schedule, there is a 100% chance of spending $1500-2000. For the same time period, what is the chance
that you would incur $1500-2000 repairs directly related to not doing any of those fluid changes? In my experience, that chance is very low.
This type of philosophy is very common in medicine, where people don't get tested for everything out there. The cost of it far outweighs the benefits. But if someone wants to have every test done to them, they are more than welcome.
