Gear box seal burnt out?

My 2006 R1200GS has just been diagnosed needing new Gear box seal, crank seal and new clutch. 1500! It’s done 19000 miles and very few in the last year as I work abroad. BMW tell me it might be caused by the low mileage and the seals drying out and then burning up when I sett the engine. Really? Anyone heard of this before? Thank you for anything that makes me feel better about my poor bike.
