From an earlier Todd Bender interview with Krieghoff’s head gunsmith:
"The first consideration in gun care is daily lubrication. No matter whether you are going out to shoot 50 targets or 200, as you put your gun together you should lubricate with grease the main bearing points of the action to the mono block, and the forearm to the action and barrel. There are really not that many spots, only about five places on the barrel that you have to look out for. Two spots, both left and right, in the hinge pin area, where you see that it gets shiny, there is a lot of bearing there. Then where the top latch slides up and closes the barrel into the action."

Should clean grease off all parts after shooting must be clean before you put new grease some time grease will pick up grit from fired power that will be abrasive

Yeah, that is pretty simple and intuitive.
What about the "internals" though, i.e. the action.
When does the stock have to come off and the sear, etc. get lubed ?

"When assembling the gun, place a thin coating of Krieghoff Gun Glide or other high quality gun grease in the barrel pivots. Use only acid- and resign-free detergents for cleaning! Place a very light coat on the flat surfaces adjacent to the pivots; on the barrel lug; on the barrel flats where they are engaged by the top latch; and on the concave portion of the forend iron where it joins the receiver. Immediately after shooting and before casing the gun, its external metal surfaces should be wiped down and lightly oiled. The bore and action of the gun should be thoroughly cleaned periodically. After disassembling the gun, wipe these surfaces to remove the grease and any grit that may have accumulated during shooting. The barrels must be cleaned after shooting to remove lead fouling and the build up of plastic from wads. Use a conventional bore solvent and follow the manufacturer’s instructions, saturating cleaning patches with the solvent and running them through the bore with a shotgun cleaning rod. For particularly stubborn fouling, apply more solvent and use a phosphor bronze cleaning brush."
