No, I have not encountered a stripped adjuster bolt. Keep in mind that the adjuster bolt does not set the tension. The installer would do that when installing the belt and then lock it down with the adjuster bolt.

If the adjuster bolt is stripped, the block would need to be repaired to accept a new bolt.

You should not need to apply any lubricant to new adjuster bolts.
