Painting decorators caulk

I have just papered the walk in wardrobe in our spare room. In a couple of corners when I trimmed by I cut it a bit short.

Today I went down the gaps with a bit of white decorators caulk whilst going round the skirting boards etc. I'm a bit worried about it going off colour before I paint as it did before in another room.

Planning to go over the areas where I used caulk with some white wood undercoat/primer before I get round to painting. Is this okay?

In my last room the emulsion also changed colour where I painted over the caulk!

Right ... Went for it and just painted over the caulking with some white vinyl matt paint i have spare.

The room will be painted shortly and hopefully the white won't show through!... Oh and the caulk
