Does and computer shut off of the DOD correct the potential lifter issues?

46K and change miles. That's what our '12 had on the clock when the cam and two lifters were replaced.

It can happen at any time, basically. Our '10 Tahoe has been fine for 110+K miles, so far. There are some vehicles that never have an issue, yet others that eat lifters like candy.

Lifters seem to be a weak spot on the LS* line of engines. Even the 'trick' LS7 lifter upgrade doesn't completely guarantee you of trouble-free miles. DOD-delete kit install will help things a lot, but there are still no guarantees.

I wouldn't trust those lifters at all. Get them out of there! Anything can happen, and then you'll be left with metal fragments throughout your engine.
