No I wouldn't have thought the glow plugs could cause a variation in idle speed once the engine has warmed slightly. They are only used these days on modern CI engines to achieve clean combustion quality at low temperatures - not as a starting aid as they used to be on older indirect engines.

Mine, at times, can be a bit lumpy of left idling from cold - I just start and drive, it is never a problem.
