I wouldn’t have to worry about that Neal. My bus ain’t ever gonna start with a coolant temp of 32°. But yes in theory the length of time you’re gonna hear that buzzer is gonna depend on how cold the coolant was to start with. But it all boils down down to how long it takes to build pressure and how long it maintains the pressure after you turn it off.
I have to admit hearing that buzzer is going to be a problem for me and likely some others. I said this project was easy. I didn’t say it was perfect. The buzzer is loud and annoying but that’s the purpose, eh?

A switch in line would take care of stopping the noise during initial warmup...then just remembering to flip the switch back before driving off .

You could probably add a thermostat to the coolant system and wire it in series with the new pressure switch in order to keep the circuit open until the coolant temperature reaches 150 degrees or whatever temperature is required to reach 4 psi. That way the alarm wouldn’t come on at start up but it would become active shortly after starting the engine.

Put one of these in. Closed switch in the presence of coolant.
