WD 40 and Fly Lines

I recently had a small problem with a reel I use whereas
a spool started to pit out. I sent the reel spool back and received a call from someone at the reel company suggesting after I wash out the reel with freshwater, I should spray the entire reel with WD-40. I asked what that would do to the line on the spool and was told that there would be no harm to the line. Does anyone have any experience with this or knowledge of what WD 40 might do to lines ??
