Default No Hardening with LED

I'm not sure where to post this. In the SS or the general forum...

I observed that when I took my seedling off my new LED lights, they seemed less stressed. The plants were healthy though - bushy foliage, slow elongation of growth (maybe more squat and bushy)....

Anyhow, I did a test this year. I did have some backups in 1G if my test failed. I did not do a full slow harden off transition cycle. I did put them on my covered porch for 2 days just so they got acclimated to ~fresh air~. I even have some some very small transplants as well - which got a late start on germinating.

All of them fared fine in the sun, with no leaf burn. We even had 2-3 days of abnormal record setting temps that hit like 15-20 degrees higher than normal. Would someone concur the same and say maybe the LEDS due to the direct light played some role in the fact that I did not need to do a full harden off ?
