- - - repack my front wheel bearings?
They have about 20k miles on them since I put new rotors with new bearings in them. The rotors turn freely with no indication of being loose, dry, notchy or noisy.
I’m not looking for a job to do but rather wonder what the recommended clean and repack mileage is.

Unless they have evidence of contamination (dirt or moisture) I'd leave them be. Repacking of front wheel bearings was neither scheduled or non-scheduled maintenance, according for Ford, but was typically a "no-brainer" whenever front brake shoes were serviced. The operation is a proper time to inspect bearing rollers and races for wear and damage.
