Does caulking on sole plate interfere with expansion gap?

Sorry for the long title. Hopefully it makes for a shorter message. Just wondering if caulking placed along sole plate of exterior wall has the potential to interfere with the expansion gap left for hardwood flooring? My guess is that it would "give" if met with expanding wood but I don't know enough to make any bets on that theory. Thoughts?

The wood floor comes nowhere near the framing. So no, it would not be an issue.
