So the question here is why are army saw gunners not carrying spare barrels?

Probably because a spare barrel is rarely needed when the M249 is used in the automatic rifle role.

For me there's also another question which is equally important. Do we even want SCHV belt feds?

Depends upon which "we" you mean.  The Army clearly wants SCHV belt-feds.  The Marines do not.

Supposedly the USMC kept the M249 to be issued on a "as needed basis". Where they are kept I don't know.

FN Herstal UK is now on Twitter and posting some pretty interesting stuff. I didn't know that Evolys was available in 6.5 mm Creedmoor.
