This is correct. I also never pump them up. Just a quick rinse in the tank. Oil on the body and lifter bore, thin smear of break-in lube on the face.

Once the valves are set I also tend to avoid turning the motor over as much as possible trying to not wipe too much break-in lube off the cam as possible.
