No. They go by date of manufacture, and now sealed battery ones are required here so people can't remove the batteries. Change them every 7-10 years.

Yes, should be dated when it was installed. Time to time to change when it is outdated.

That is funny.

Maybe he has tenants who are prone to removing these and wants to know where to reinstall them.

No, the one's I use are battery operated and chirp when they start losing power.... I make it a policy to replace the batteries every October.

No I do not. Ours are hardwired into our home. The ones we have in the rental house are tested every 4 months when we do a home check.

Our alarms have a 10-year battery, and they will beep when they have to be replaced, so no, we do not date them Fred Griffin

It's a good idea, but we don't... just wait until it starts signaling its demise. Just a few week ago, a carbon monoxide detector started beeping, then quit and the words "END" were displayed on it. It died.
