^Why rubbing alcohol? I'm not trying to disrespect, just curious on why, I know some things get perceived differently over text on the internet.
That's not a bad question. Only way to learn is to ask.
Always use rubbing alchol for cleaning your marker. It doesn't hurt the eyes and it breaks down grease. Your marker uses grease, and of course paintball fill is greasy. It also dries without leaving a residue.
The reason to clean and lube your new bolt is because it will not have fresh lube on it. Grease will break down and separate after time (same as a can of paint.) The marker has been sitting somewhere for a long time.

Do you NEED to lube a brand new marker fresh out of the box? No.
Can you lube a brand new marker fresh out of the box? Sure.
Do you need to use alcohol to clean your marker? No. Only if you can't get it clean with plain paper towels first.
