The codes may clear themselves but it's better to clear them with a OBDII code reader or equivalent.
If you are still getting codes, follow the excellent post #57 by AlanAZ.
I suggest replacing the O-rings (PN 11 36 7 548 459) while you are in there. ecstuning has the Victor Reinz brand for about 5 bucks apiece.
The photos show the O-ring kit I got over-the-counter from the BMW dealership.
