    Journal replay isn't a modification of the filesystem which requires quotacheck to run. When quota is journaled, it has the same properties as any other filesystem metadata (quota changes are recorded in the journal along with other metadata modifications). Thus quotacheck is needed if and only if you need to run fsck manually to correct some errors.
