Breaking an engine in is absolutely required on a rebuild or a new engine. Mercedes has specific break in instructions, listed in the owner's manual. Breaking in is not obsolete.
However, the use of a "break in" oil is not required and many high performance cars come from the factory with synthetic oil.
The idea that a synthetic will prevent break in is an old wive's tale.
