I think that is different depending on the species (or even on the individual tarantula), but yes, they do poop in their burrow. But, in the wild their burrows are deeper and (usually) have branches (in fosorial species), and they can keep boluses, exuviae and poop in one of the "chambers" (or take them out of the burrow).To my knowledge T's don't poop in their burrow
IMO we should not compare both conditions (T's in the wild and T's in captivity). But I agree, if they are kept under proper conditions, you can have the same enclosure/substrate for the tarantula's lifetime.
