If I have a software RAID that I created under MINT using `mdadm`. will the partition work the same after installing Ubuntu 16.04 or will I have to re-synch the volumes?

AFAIK mdadm has been stable for years (one of the reasons why I prefer software raid to hardware raid). As long as you boot into anything resembling a recent Linux kernel along with a userspace with mdadm support, you should be fine.

If in doubt, boot from a live-cd/usb and see if you can mount your drives ok.
