If you did studs one at a time, and it kicked a gasket out shortly afterwards, I would imagine the answer would be no.
And a few guys at the dealer level would be upset that it has studs in it, and not warranty any engine failures.
Me personally? I wouldn't care. But if I started tearing your truck apart for head gaskets and found studs and the original head gaskets, I probably wouldn't be a great deal of impressed, and we'd need to have a discussion about what went on there.
You'd need to run it past your diesel tech at the dealer, and see what he says.
As I said before, Me, personally? I would change the gaskets as well as installing the studs. Just for piece of mind.
