Not a common practice that I know of but I would bet temps could be a lot higher than expected 200+ degrees.

Invest in the cheap little temp guns and you can find all the normal operating temps that are impossible to find otherwise.Brakes,Trans,Rear end,AC ect.You would be surprised how hot the parts get. Lurking around rest areas and truck stops will give a base line for normal temps but the being strange factor may apply.What the hell it is all to gain knowledge and you could get dinner and a movie from a lonely trucker if you are into that kind of thing.
