No. If that were the case then Roundup would be rendered ineffective if it rained or there was a heavy dew any time within a week after application.
Any type of herbicide (selective or universal) requires a few hours to soak in. It then takes a week for the plant to die. This will happen whether the soil is turned over or not (except of course that turning the soil over increases the damage).
Read the instructions on the bottles. It explains it all.

ANNUAL WEEDS • Apply to actively growing grass and broadleaf weeds. • Allow at least 3 days after treatment before tillage.
PERENNIAL WEEDS Apply this product as follows to control or destroy most perennial weeds: NOTE: If weeds have been mowed or tilled, do not treat until plants have resumed active growth and have reached the recommended stages. Repeat treatments may be necessary to control weeds regenerating from underground parts or seed. Repeat treatments must be made prior to crop emergence.

Apply when the weeds are actively growing and are at or beyond full bloom. Do not treat when weed is under drought stress as good soil moisture is necessary for active growth. For best results, apply in late summer or fall. Fall treatments must be applied before a killing frost. Allow 7 or more days after application before tillage.

As an aside, you don't need to till real deep, two inches is plenty. The drawback to deep tilling is it will have sink holes from rain, and it won't support foot traffic, or the lawn-mower, without rutting.
Good luck, this is the best time to do it.
