Paul, if you mean acoustic effects . . . probably nothing audibly detectable resulting from minor warping.
If the warping has resulted in a mismatch between the tenon and socket, permitting a small leak, that's another matter. It would probably be true to say that all wooden artefacts warp, as well as changing shape throughout the seasonal year. The question is really in the degree of change.
