Could be I don’t know. I just patched at least 10,000 holes in old plaster with joint compound. I normally patch the holes sand some then hit them again sand a little more, then prime with Kilz 2 and then paint. If texture is a problem, then anything you patch with will have to match the texture. Larger holes and cracks I use the mesh tape on.
I know my dad told me a million times not to exaggerate.
