Default Block Stresses

We all know that to bore and hone a cylinder with out a head plate torqued is an exercise in futility in regard to an optimum round cylinder when assembled. What happens when a cylinder that is bored and honed with a deck plate installed then assembled using studs. Do the stresses induced using bolts equal the stresses using studs?

It's supposed to be a different stress, but I expect that at the level most of us are at, it's not going to make a noticeable difference. There's probably a greater difference caused just in the different torque wrenches used between the machinist honing the block and the end user assembling the engine.
