Welcome to the forum.
I think your 2001 model does have time counter as well as mileage counter on FSS, so the warning will come up after 12 months if you are in US, or 24 months if you are in the rest of the World.
We did own 1999 MB that didn't have time counter and for years we did service in about 18-20 months intervals whenever the mileage counter clicked in.
As you can see the 12 month counter can be reviewed with lot of flexibility.
