I think it also largely depends on the car they are fitted on and its noise insulation.

Does the mended area get back to normal? Can the tyre sustain high speeds after that?
Its better to get the tire mended "properly" than using those stick on mending kits. I believe the mending kit you are talking about it what they call a "cold patch" or something...which is just like a bandaid that you stick on (and i guess the air pressure keeps it on as well. I guess that is an ok solution, but better to go for the 100% safe option.
The alternative is a "hot patch" (i hope i have got this terminology correct) which is where they actually put a heated patch on that fuses to the tire really well. If you remember they did this on my tire before we went to mahableshwar, i cant remember if u were there when they were putting the patch on though.
