How Often Do Camera Installers Paint Touch-Up?

I am curious to know if touch-up painting is common when hanging cameras?

In my experience, retrofitted boxes, cable hiders, and filled/ spackled screw holes get covered in matching paint. Minor drywall patches get taped/mudded and painted too.

This generally means buying a pint (or small amount) of color matched paint, but even when 'professionally' matched, covered repainted spots can be obvious to picky eyes.

How do you handle this? Or do you?
