Don't they? I know that I'm still affected by my friends' more odious habits. Sure, they don't always have an affect on my interactions with then — but sometimes you just can't deal with this or that thing a friend does this time. Seems to me that's best reflected as all normal reaction modifiers for the situation applying, plus more or less of a hefty "Friendship" reaction bonus that gives the desired reaction in most situations.
