It is covered under the home warranty,

I am surprised. I've had two, and I'm pretty sure that would not have been covered, but I was wrong to guess the replacements would not have been covered in yours.

I would recommend that you jot something on a calendar a month or two down the road, to go back and eyeball all those which the plumber "loosened." My experience (and others in the thread) is that "locked" shutoff valves which are loosened sometimes give way to a slow drip; under a cabinet where you never look that can be nasty, leading to wood failure, mildew or mold. Check after a few weeks or months to make sure.
