Nah, it's just the nature of the cooling process. Once the coolant and oil stop flowing things will heat up significantly. You can test this by turning off the car and keeping the key in the ON position. You can watch the oil and water temps rise, even my 100 hp saturn does it. Only time harm will be done is if on a heavily modified FI application where you do several runs and shut the car off immediately. Turbo damage could be a probable consequence.
