Default Camshaft sprocket movement (Timing belt removal question)

When I removed the timing belt I accidentally moved the lower driver's side camshaft sprocket a few teeth one way and then quickly moved it back to where it was. Could this have caused any bent valves? Also, as long as I turn the sprockets in the correct directions, no harm can be done, no matter how many times I turn them, right?

I turned mine all the way around at least 3 times doing my belt and no issues.

The issue on dohc cars is hitting intake and exhaust valves together, so mind your Ps and Qs while spinning your cams. If your crank is lined up properly, you'll never hit the pistons.
