Because XFS is a journaling file system which can, and should, recover
automatically from an unclean shutdown such as a system crash or power

If you get XFS corruption after a reboot then you have a hardware or software

The purpose of a journaling file system is to make time-consuming fsck and
similar checks unnecessary after a reboot.
