After extraction I open fed the supers back. After they were cleaned up I sprayed them with BT Azawai. They now have mold on them.

Is it true that the bees will clean this up well enough to harvest honey from ?

Yes, the bees will clean them up.

Yup, that will be just fine!

The little bit of water probably wetted the pollen and trace sugar enough to give the mold a field day.  If you can next time stack them so they get a little air so they dry out and you won't see that as bad.
