Ram15002ndgen will become famous soon enough

Yea the Ford 4.6 was notorious in the Mustangs for broken plugs. Bad news for sure. It was so bad even the dealer couldn't get them out in one piece. I don't think any manufacturer or dealer has any way of checking to see if the work was done. Are they going to ask you for receipts? I don't think so! Even if you did follow through with the maintenance you might loose the receipts in a flood, fire, theft, they can't penalize you for that. I have to wonder also if you are looking at the Extreme conditions maintenance, because 30K for plugs sounds rather old fashioned. I know when I was looking at getting a Challenger last year I read through the manual online and on the V6 the plugs didn't need changing till 100K for regular maintenance. I would reread through your manual and make sure you got it right.
