To retorque the new head studs that is, not reusing old ones.
Reason I mentioned is a couple months back a friend with 6.4 had his head studs replaced and a short while later he started to have oil leaks. I asked if he retorqued them and he said the same what you said "never heard anyone doing that"
My comment was from years of building 2.0 big tubo engines, we always retorque them after a few heat cycles to prevent blown heads, leaks etc.
