Should we treat sous vide low temp pasteurized meats any differently than regularly cooked foods?

For example, we have always left stovetop cooked meats out in room temperature for couple hours, even up to 5+ hours depending on how hot it is. Although this is not best practices and something we can't recommend, it has worked fine for us for the last 20+ years.

It shouldn't be any different for sous vide cooked meats? At least *once* its been removed from the vacuum pouch?

For example, meats that has been fully pasteurized @ 131F for 4+ hrs shouldn't need to be treated any differently than traditional stovetop cooked meats?
