Yes, it eventually goes away in all but rare cases. I have a stud that was gelded at 7 years old or so because he threw short foals. Great riding horse though so he got gelded and it takes a while for their hormones to adjust to gelding and settle down. My vet had some formula for how many months he had been a stud that allowed him to calculate how many months approx until his hormones balanced out. Unfortunately as he is 13 now I don't remember anymore exactly how long it took. However, it does balance out eventually. I pasture him with his buddy now days who is an ancient retired mare. He has never tried to mount her. Picture of him for reference, you can kind of see he is muscled and built like a stud not like a gelding that was cut early on. I use him as a riding horse for my girls now because he is so stinking gentle and friendly.
Anything worth doing, is worth doing well.
