Everyone reuses a bit of their own material once in a while, though I feel the comparison to Horner is not entirely accurate. Horner's reused themes are blatantly obvious, a distraction to some.

I feel for some other composers, their reuse of previous motifs are sort of like "easter eggs" for film music buffs; in the sense they are not in your face, but if you pay attention, its a hidden treat you'll notice that sort of "rewards" you for listening to their previous works.
