Direct Injection engine maintenance

I have a 2009 Cadillac CTS with a 3.6 direct injection engine with 33,000 miles. At my most recent oil change, the service tech recommended a fuel system clean up (approx $400!) as part of the 30,000 mile maintenance schedule. Is this because of the DI engine and the carbon buildup concerns? Is this REALLY necessary?
