cracks in fork wipers?

I saw these little cracks on the wipers of my forks today while looking it over in preparation for the track. There is no evidence of leakage though, should I be worried about this? Does replacement require complete fork disassembly?

Not necessarily but you should replace them the first chance you get.

The oil seals are beneath them and if there isn't any oil leaking that means they are still good.

Nothing to worry about, just replace it next time you tear the forks down
