Chains and associated parts DO wear. The e30 M3 cars recommend a complete chain, pulleys and tensioners change at 100k miles for example. Noisy engines can be an indicator of a worn timing chain. Having said that you have a relatively new car so I wouldn't worry unless it has done 50k per year or similar.
