Do all 2.2 timing chains stretch?

I seem to read that the 2.2 chain will stretch, its just a mater of time.
Is this really the case?.

I would certainly change the oil/filter more frequently than that recommended in the service schedule.

Most problems seem to be linked to poor oil lubrication with the extended oil/filter changes.
