Of course its always best to replace any crush ring or o-ring when you are taking something apart that contains them. I can tell you from experience though that like these guys mentioned to you the ones on the block drains are commonly reused.
I have done it myself several times and not seen a problem. It is not like an oil drain plug which is removed and installed several times and so chances are this will be the 1st removal in the life of the engine. From the factory these crush rings are hardly even squashed down so they look brand new when u take the drain out. I would say reusing them once is not a problem as long as you dont see any abnormal wear on the ring that would make you think otherwise.
