GMB managers and local businesses have reported getting surveys like these from Google:

Does this indicate that ranking on GMB will require a monthly subscription in the near future? Or is this just people reaching for predictions?

@JMathematical @kate-nz, Google started sending those out last year:

It's impossible to say what Google will do, of course, so my working assumption has been simply that they are sending up weather balloons. Just to get people's feedback

You can expect GMB to continue to be more and more monetized by Google. Look up 'Google Guaranteed Home Services' - they are paid enhancements to your listings Google is testing in a few verticals. Ads are now heavily promoted in native GMB and API partners like us are being encouraged to plug in.

I have not heard from anyone about this going out since last year, that one time.
