If the bolts are in stretch mode then of course the torque
won't increase.
 IF I was to do the torquing then I'd be inclined to give a
bolt near the leak a minimum turn just to move the bolt and
note the torque required and then go through each one in the
proper sequence with the same minimum.
BUT then again you don't know what crud has accumulated
under the bolt[s] and some of you more lucky chaps...
