A data point: The Fluke 5440B service manual contains a module cleaning description in section 3-11 on page 66 of the PDF.  The final note in the section reads:

    A satisfactory cleaning method consists of holding the PCAs
    under running hot water until they are clean.

Their procedure really has more to due with getting "dirt" off of the boards rather than cleaning off flux residue and other things that affect the circuit performance, but...
