I changed an already existing package (with already transported objects), assigning it an Application Component in SE80 (which was blank).

Does it cause any change to the objects assigned to the package? I don't think so, since there is a separate option for that ("Write transport entry" > "Package" vs "All Objects"), but I want to be absolutely sure there's no side effect at all caused by transporting this change.
Actually other threads I found related to the subject left me unsure, since some say there's no change to the objects:
...and others quite the contrary:
Please, I expect answers based exclusively on experience and knowledge.
