Sure- condensing gas boilers, where they get huge efficiency boosts out of ever-lower temps you'd want to use the outdoor reset function.
With right-sized oil boilers and radiation such that the boiler needs to hit 220F under design conditions there may be a worthwhile boost in comfort using an outdoor reset control. That's probably only 1 in 100, not 1 in 1,000,000.
Most of the time intelligent heat-purge economizers are the way to go for retrofits, especially on the 3x+ oversized behemoths typically found in MA homes. The average home in MA has a design-condition heat load between 45-50,000 BTU/hr, but as often as not the basement beastie-boiler is serving up 140,000 BTU/hr or more. It's often very difficult to convince homeowners at the time of boiler replacement that their true heat loads are as low as they really are, and most HVAC contractors have neither the time nor interest in convincing them to down-size. But there's a serious hit in efficiency when that happens, unless heat purge controls are part of the deal.
