It does not make sense to me that this could happen in a pressurized water supply system but it's true. When I turn on the kitchen sink faucet it sounds like there is air along with the "aerated water". The shower closest to the main valve has a similar sound.

I'm not a plumber, so is this anything to worry about?

No, city of Houston main.

Work recently done to the system includes replacing the main valve where the supply is stubbed up through the sill plate, the hose bib that tee's off just above that valve, new controls on the shower and moving the bathroom sink supply lines about a foot. The shower and bathroom sink are stubbed out but don't have valves on them to purge the system; could this be the problem?

No, the air in the lines from working on the system would have been purged in the first couple of minutes of use. See your'e other post for more info.
