Should I be concerned about resetting SMC or is it 'risk free' procedure that can only help and worse case do nothing?

No big effects, neither positive nor negative.

Was probably too cautious.

If this helps, these are Apple's reasons for resetting the SMC:

The only disadvantage is it might clear some preferences, but there's nothing "critical" in doing so.
