Hi

Vibration modulates lead inductance. That's true even on SMT semiconductors.. It's true big time for leaded parts of the axial persuasion. Weather the amount of change matters to you is another thing entirely. 

If you stick with NPO even for the bypass caps, the piezo stuff is not going to be a big issue.
