On refrigerators with DSI, there is no pilot light, the gas comes on and the DSI sparks to ignite the burner.
It is easy to just turn the refrigerator off before
you enter the station and back on after
you leave if you are concerned.
Gas fumes are much heavier than air and sink to the ground. Chances of ignition are probably astronomical, but some people elect to turn the frigs off and there's nothing wrong with being cautious.
We've always left ours on.
