Does boiling a pipe to clean it weaken the glass?

Water boils at 212F and unless it's under pressure, or salt is added, it will not get any hotter.
Pretty much what the title says. The method I heard to use for boiling was start with cool water, place the pipe in the pot, then turn the stove on (so the piece doesn't break going from room temp to burning hot). My friend says he never does this since boiling it "weakens the glass". Is this true? I'm pretty sure it takes a lot more than 400F to weaken/break glass, even after doing it multiple times. Just something I was thinking about today lol
