Leads can last through several device changes. If there's an indication of a problem with a lead, they would tell you beforehand so you can discuss options. You should ask to be sure, but if they haven't said anything your leads are probably fine.

I'm on my 5th device and still have one original working lead. One was replaced with #3. Average lead life is 15 years but they can go a lot longer than that.
