I don't have an OM, but it is most likely what they are talking about when they say "pin lube" in the brake area of the OM, and should be done at regular intervals or any other time you remove the caliper, don't
wait until you rebuild the caliper. Calipers can last nearly forever if the fluid is kept changed to keep the moisture out.
Be sure to check the condition of the rubber covers or seals that help to keep the dirt and moisture out and replace any that are damaged. Clean the old grease off the pin and out of the caliper as best you can and I use a small amount of regular grease to keep them moving easy. Regular interval service is what keeps them in good shape.
