I agree with the first part; yes the compound would/will remove material. But that would move the valve further into the cylinder head/valve face. Which would push the stem further up into the shim/bucket/cam assembly. Thus, reducing the clearance between the top of the bucket and the camshaft.

But my clearance increased......
