Yes, a special size of spokes is needed for the Rohloff hub to avoid any risk of flange damage.

But with the blue label on that hub, it is an old hub and these recommendations of Rohloff about the spoke size didn't exist at the time this hub was produced and probably mounted into a wheel.

Nowadays, Rohloff also sell and recommend to use flange reinforcement rings.
