Check with manual or Service Adviser.
There are several types of tire monitoring systems and having different principals they work differently.
I have never seen the factory system on MB in USA, but most common is the sensor attached on inner side of tire valve. Those will stay with the rim when you change the tire, but you better advise the tire person about their presence, or they might be easily damaged.
