Default Batch annealing vs stress

I have some beads I received form a friend which were never annealed. I plan on batch annealing these ; but my question if the beads have stress from not being annealed yet and after the fact they get proper annealing is there not a goodly chance they may still break sometime with a temperature change from any stress that was from when cooled at the time after making and than cooled in a fiber blanket. Anther words if a bead form stress in it won't some stress remain in the glass even if annealed? I realize the beads will be better annealed , I just consider this a possible tho
