With a quality scope, no. And a Monarch is definitely a quality scope.

I always sight mine in at the highest power. Why? Because your long range shots will probably be taken with the scope on that power. I do this even with real high dollar scopes.

I've always done the same and then don't worry about it when shooting at closer distances or lower powers.

The first variable scopes, yes it would change, but the new ones are much better and there is no need to worry about it.
