A/C dye damages paint?

I had A/C checked and repaired.

On the driverís side, I see green dye on painted area under the hood.
Does the dye damage the paint? Should I wash it?

The tech found leaking valve, amd R134 adapter.

1992 300D 2.5 turbo diesel. 319 k miles.
124.128 chassis, 602.962 engine, 722.418 tranny.

the dye itself may not dmg paint, but the oil that's probably mixed with it can. i would gently wash with mild soap and flush with water. being careful not to splash on all the electrical parts in the area. definitely couldn't hurt.
