I just finished my install and didn't think about building cryptsetup and lvm2 statically, I just emerged them and used genkernel to build the initramfs. I was under the impression they must be build statically, but all seems to be working gentoo boots just fine.

You can use non-static builds of anything in the initramfs, provided you bring in all the dependencies. Sometimes this is inconvenient or causes excess bloat, so static linking can be preferable in those cases. If non-static works for you, there is no need to change.
