The advice you'll find most often is to remove suppression capacitors.

DCC decoders have suppression circuitry so the other capacitors (for DC running) are not needed.

Sure a loco may run with the old capacitors in place, but we have found that when a loco struggles sometimes, removing the capacitors does make a difference. So to save the effort of re-opening the body up, it is simpler just to remove them when doing the installation.
