Hello I will help you with your question,
No, the marks on the chains are only to line it up initially, they will not line up again.
You can mark the crank sprocket against the case and the cams against the case and you will see those come back into alignment every 2 revolutions of the crank but the chains do not line up again.
Let me know how I can help
Thank you
