Mosses can pearl, but what happens after a water change is just gas dropping out of the solution. The water from the tap is high in dissolved gasses, and gets agitated going into your tank. Bubbles tend to form on surfaces, and your moss is prime realestate for bubble forming due to its high surface area.

This doesn't mean your moss won't pearl, but after a water change the offgassing is what's referred to as "false pearling".

...and THAT was the most precise answer I've found on the internet this whole hour, thanks!
