They don't always ask for anything. If you cover everything off in your application form with the documents requested, then you shouldn't have to provide anything else. We didn't have to provide anything extra beyond the stuff with the application.
I applied mid-2016 on the basis of having 5 years residence (non-EU citizen). At that time, the latest version of Form 8 was from 2015 (Ver. 5.3). In this version, there was no requirement to submit the original passport or any address proofs with the application.
However, just a month after I applied, Form 8 was updated and it included the two requirements (original passports and 3 different address proofs for each year of residence). When I saw this, I quickly made a list of address proofs I could use for each year. I was expecting them to send me a letter asking for these documents in order to make my application conform to the new requirements. But that didn't happen, and they seemed to only consider requirements that were current on the date of my application.
