I am not sure it should break in. The system is self adjusting so they should always be adjusted correctly. Have you pulled the valve cover and had a look to make sure everything looks okay and the cam is getting oiled. It is messy but well worth it to check.
I assume you got the right came for your specific engine, MB cams vary based on the engine designation. I am sure you did but just checking.
