More mass will cause pressure to rise faster vs less mass. 35psi at 40*F isn't the same mass as 35psi at 90*F.
Or is the recommended pressures at some type of standard temp (72*F)? (if so that should be published more as well as a conversion for temp)
Recommended pressure (cold inflation pressure) is the pressure of the tire at ambient temperature without any heat build up due to usage.

Not following exactly what you are asking here.
