Does the timing belt need replacing in the v6 edition?

yes, all timing belts need replacing sooner or later
Your H6 3.0L does not have a timing belt. It has 3 timing chains that should never have to be replaced. However if removal is required for a particular repair it is crucial that it be done at a dealer or by a certified subaru technician who is familiar with the H6 models.
