monolythic (solid) devices. OK, "should not be affected..." up to a point.
If you get vibration that causes g forces great enough to cause mechanical
breakdown of the physical packaging, *then* the values will change. Other
components, however, will be affected because they are either mechanical in
function (crystals), or are such that the shape can be easily changed
(coils, etc.). I suppose if the components were surface mounted on a
circuit board that was flexible enough, and the vibrations caused the
components to bend or otherwise change shape *then* caps and resistors
could change value.
