[RCSE] Will 3M clear tape do any damage to a molded wing?

I recently purchased a used molded sailplane the previous owner had taped
the wing surfaces at the tip-main panel junction. Is this tape to protect
the surface when applying tape to hold the tips to the center panel?

Usually. Prevents the paint comming off with frequent tape removal.

I don't know about 3M clear, as I use cheap vinyl electrical tape
from Home Depot which is more gooey than sticky... comes in colors
too. The goo comes off with orange cleaner.
