I don't know if "softer" would be the right terminology but the forks and rear shock do require maintenance.
You would need to be more specific on what your exact problem is for any advise

I have noticed on many bikes the forks and shock can "break in" causing it to feel a little looser or softer after a bit of use. Might set sag on the suspension now and see how it feels from there unless you have used it quite a bit and need a service on front end or something.

Repair manuals I've used in the past had minimum length measurements for the fork springs to be replaced if out of spec. Do the measurement while refreshing fork oil and seals. So yea they do weaken over time. I would imagine it would take many decades of riding in rough conditions though...
