3.8 will receive no further updates post 3.12 is released, if the
cluster is stable and you are not waiting on any fixes, then staying on
a bit longer may not hurt.

Yes, issues raised on 3.8 will *possibly* receive an answer which would
be, "please upgrade and let us know if the problem persists".

It should not given your usage, the problem should persist in 3.8
version as well, and in latest 3.10 releases, the last known problems
regarding this corruption are fixed and we are just awaiting
confirmation from users to remove the note.

The upgrade notes  covers this, in short an offline upgrade is not
needed in your setup, as disperse is not a part of the stack.
