Not that I've noticed with one swap. Im sure it would start to after a while if you swapped them a lot, but probably no worse than the silk would fray.

Alternatively, clear nail polish could work.
The main reason I do it, is to change the color. If i did it strictly to secure the threads, I probably would have used some clear poly or shelac spray. There is enough of that stuff here.

As if the post has anything closely related to my sound, technique or experience
I posted it here, so the "not so greats" (You included) can have access to it and see what some one else has done. Maybe someone will benefit from this, maybe not.
Remember this thread? Silk wraps, which strings are even vs staggered?
What I posted in this one, is a solution to yours.
