Yes, especially on cars with high mileage. I have a 90 Acura Legend (made by Honda) with 145,000 miles and it does this too. As the car warms up, the ticking noise decreases or goes away. I've gotten use to it and ignore it.

NO. The engine computer is in open loop until the engine heats up to operating temperature 195 degrees are more. that means it don't hear the lifter noise and by the time the computer can, the lifter quites making noise.

Bearing noise is usually deeper and comes from farther down in the engine. Lifter noise is more of a ticking and is up in the engine heads.

A tapping noise is generally the result of a bad hydraulic lifter, plugged oil passage to the lifter, or bad tappets. Sometimes just changing to lower viscosity high detergent oil will cure it. Or "Any automotive oil additive with the word MIRACLE in it".
