Default soaking corks?

I just finished bottling my first cider and read the side of the cheap little hand corker I have. It says to always soak corks overnight in an Campden solution. I'm not sure why but I thought cork was used because it was basically sterile. DO I need to soak some corks and recork? PS it's a spiced cider (used "seasons greetings" tea bags) and it is tasty.
