They are supposed to. There is even a label in my engine compartment that says all aluminum bolts which are marked blue in most cases must be replaced if they are removed and they aren't terribly expensive. New ones must be torqued to specs to avoid breaking them. Get yourself a Bentley manual if you're interested in doing your own maintenance once your warranty is up.
