I don't think that will be necessary. What exactly was wrong with the
kernel headers? It's not that their contents will be different. So if a
package didn't complain about the kernel headers then there's no reason to
redo such package, unless you face a very weird extreme situation. Of
course if it makes you feel better, by all means redo whatever you want to
do. But I'd just continue and only recompile a package if you experience
problems with it.
