The moist and tender part could possibly be a fluke, but I know what my fresh herbs taste like, and I taste them in my chickens. So, something good is happening in that overnight brine.
Absolutely. I load up my brine with fresh chopped oregano & thyme from my garden. It also helps when you re-heat the leftovers.
