1st the rebuild kits are the stems that the TPS is mounted to. Moisture tends to cause issues to the valves so the couple dollars is not that much to have a better chance of no leaks from the valve. As for nitrogen, it is a Scam. Don't worry about the "water" or other types of air which are in the tires. You will never reap the benefits that Nitrogen provides.
