Paint and conduit?

I had a boy from the neighborhood doing some landscaping here. He was digging in the mulch beds and uncovered a large metal pipe that I assume carries the AC to my detached garage. He didn't damage the pipe but for some reason he took it upon himself to spray paint it.

So my question is, does spray paint make a pipe deteriorate faster?
Is it any less electrically grounded with a coat of paint on it?

maybe he was trying to make it more visible ??

I've painted a good bit of exposed conduit [both metal and PVC] over the years and have never heard of it harming the conduit.
