Do new motor mounts need to break in? SOLVED 200 1993

SOLVED! I thought about this some more after noticing that the NVH was less when the engine was warm. So I drove several miles to heat up the engine compartment, returned home, then loosed the top nuts on the right and left mounts (easy access). They were a bit tight. I restarted the car and the noise and buzz that was bothering me was gone (there are other noises). I moved the gear selector from Park to Reverse, Drive, etc... a few times to get the engine to settle. Retightened the nuts to snug but not overly tight and drove the car and it's good. So, bottom line I had the top nuts too tight. I suspect the rubber expands some when warm, so I wanted to tighten when warm and not cold.
