Some of both, and......
Fluids need to be changed. I wish cars had hour meters rather than odometers. A car sitting in traffic isn't getting any miles but all it functioning parts are getting used. Also if you live in a humid area moisture is created with the heating of fluids and the humid air in the tranny and diff. Plus Brake fluid absorbs moisture just sitting there. I do a 2 year fluid change cycle on the diff, gearbox, coolant, and brake fluid regardless of the miles driven, and any filters that haven't been changed.
Spark plugs are a bit different. Again hours are more representative than miles. I would remove the plugs and visually inspect them. If gap is correct and there are no deposites then they can be reused.
Oh and one more thing...Get out and drive your car!
