Some guys do, some don't. I have done it both ways and had no problems either way.
Steel shim gaskets are less likely to need a retorque than a thick composite gasket. When in doubt you can always ask the manufacturer for their recommendations.
If you decide you want to retorque, here
is some info.
Be sure to use sealant on the threads of bolts entering the water jacket and a little motor oil under the head of the bolt. I always use a non hardening sealer. It's also a good idea to not torque the bolt on a painted surface unless the coat is very thin.
