I have never turned off VR, IS or OIS on any lens when I remove it from a camera. None of my lenses or cameras have exploded or died an untimely death. I'm pretty sure if it was a required action with Fuji lenses Fuji would tell us. My .02 enjoy your fine lenses & don't worry.

That's great to know! I've never had any issues, but once I saw these "myths" circulating the internet, I became overly cautious. Thanks for mythbusting!
