I was on a aircraft carrier a couple of years back (fun, not working) and noticed that they had squeeze bottles of mayo that never left the mess tables.  The bottles also had on 'refrigerate after opening' warning.
I contacted the manufacturer and it turns out that mayo, clean mayo, won't spoil; the pH is too low.  You get into problems if you add anything to the mayo, then the pH goes up and things will grow.

The 'refrigerate after opening' message really has to do with the taste and texture of the product rather than spoilage.

Who knew?

I still find myself buying mayonnaise. My mustard doesn't go bad but am scared to make and keep mayonnaise for fear of it going off. But, there doesn't seem to be any preservatives in my Duke's mayo and it keeps as good as my mustard.
