You would have to do it. Most sites never need to, but if something goes wrong it is a possible step in troubleshooting your issues.

You navigate to the install directory, it is one of the options. Unless your site is malfunctioning, you do not need to run the process.

This is my concern, when my site is setup and running smoothly. If somebody is trying to browser install folder what will happen

Nothing, rebuilding the master data won't effect the running of your forum if it is smooth.

They cannot reinstall without entering passwords, the folder is fine being there.

I never remove it, instead I chose to block it for external access... as well other files.

Code:
[root@chronos ~][root@chronos ~]# ls -lah /var/www/xenforo | grep install
drwxr-xr-x.  4 root    root 4.0K Nov  6 19:27 install
# ls -lah /var/www/xenforo/library/config.php
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 737 Aug 25  2012 /var/www/xenforo/library/config.php
looks like you have blocked directly in server
