Engine break in with low tension rings

I know to start off with dyno oil.. for the first 500
I always run it, an hour or 5 then drain and refill with new filter and then go 500 miles, then drain then switch over to syn..

is there any difference in break in with low tension type rings..
the cam break in, is not an issue here as it's roller..
