An-124s are very frequent visitors at my local, EMA/EGNX, and without exception the crew always request 3-4 mins on the runway to run up the engines - my understanding is its to do with stabilizing the internal temperatures - never has one just 'taxied and scooted' so i can't see why this would be any different for any other airport they operate from.
