'Proper' VRLA batteries , that is what will happen to them.
I remembery your post well actually.
Usually the Taiwan / Jap batteries are good for not making a mess when they fail. But, as part of any thing else I think anyone who uses a UPS should check them twice a year.
I do, and it prevented an issue when the XS needed new ones.

Ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure anyday.
