Or are they good to go after the preliminary cleaning?

Personally, I would clean to remove all the preservation oil/grease and enjoy. But others may argue that breaking-in is needed.

if you paid $3,000 for it, yes
if you paid $300 for it, nope

No barrel needs to be broken in.

Everything breaks in.

Not much actually needs it.

If you're shooting competitions with it, worry about it. If you're shooting groundhogs, just throw in your choice of ammo and check your scope after a couple hundred rounds.

Just shoot it, whatever it is.

Clean it and shoot it. Don't worry about it. Some rifles take some shooting to "break them in" (even rimfires), but I would not concern myself with that. Just shoot it.
