Alignment cam ?

So I had my alignment done on my truck after installing my Light Racing UCA's, and it drives great...then I read on her about how a lot of places that do alignments don't tighten the cam bolts down enough, so I went to check them out...all of them were tightened to around 30-40 ft/lbs. My question is whether the cams could have moved out of where they were placed after about 40-60 kms of use on bumpy roads? I didn't check where they were right after the alignment, so I have no idea where they would have been. Truck still seems fine, and I tightened them all to the 100 ft/lbs I seen posted on here...should I be paranoid?
