Question Best way to repair/patch-up this cracked ceramic floor tile?

Hi again guys,

I was inspecting my closet, and found this thin crack spanning across three tiles! I'm really surprised that this has occurred over the past few years, since it's a no-traffic area. The thing is, I really don't want to do a full-on tile replacement, as we're selling the house soon and I can't find the same replacement tiles:

Hopefully you can see it in the above photo. The dark closet doesn't make for a good photo!

What's the best way to quickly patch this up? Fill in the crack with acrylic caulk? A similarly-coloured paint?

Any attempted repair will most likely make it look worse. I would just leave it be.

Something's going on under that area of the floor. Notice the crack also in the baseboard.
Getting ready to sell then better check under the floor before an inspector picks up on what's wrong and holds up a sale.
