Or are you talking about a 20+ year old vehicle wherein the paint is basically gone around the sticker, and rust has pitted the metal around the sticker? That I can believe.
my jeep still had decent paint when body work began. when i striped the doors you could see a discoloration in the metal in the shape of the graphic.
yes filler will help the issue but areas do not always need filler where graphics were. we can make them go away but you always risk that they will come back years later but most of the time anything that comes back can be removed with a simple wetsand and rub. if i wanted my jeep to be perfect i could sand and rub it and make it go away but i will just let the trees sand it for me

i was just making a point that waiting will not stop it from printing the paint.

I guess it's a case of, "To each their own".

With the right decal, I like the look....it's as simple as that.
