Do I need to keep bees locked in?

We are grateful you are here

Do I need to keep bees locked in?

My hive swarmed, went into the neighbors yard (tree). Cut the branch, put them in a hive, let them all settle in, and then this evening I closed the door and brought them back home to a new spot.

Because they only swarmed to the next door neighbor, do I need to keep them locked in the hive for 3 days to force them to do new locating flights? Like you have to do when you only move them a short distance.
