I have never heard of that happening. Maybe someone else has.
My suggestion would be to predrill and countersink the holes through the door jamb. Use 1/4 tapcons, I have never had good luck with the 3/16 tapcons, their threads are smaller and they strip easily. Be careful as you tighten the screws, because if you strip them they are worthless. So slowly bring the heads tight, don't over-tighten. An impact works well with the bugle-head phillips screws. The length of the screw is critical. Penetration into 1 of cement is ideal. 3/4 is barely enough... 1 1/4 can be too much, and the screw will either break or won't seat.. I'll usually have along several different length screws and use the one that bites the best. In addition to the anchors you decide to use, you could also glue the jamb to the wall to help prevent any movement that might loosen the anchor over time.
