The Tourney rear derailleurs work fine, but will wear out more quickly than Sora, Alivio, or better types, but they'll still last several years for most folks. Don't feel bad about spoiling a vintage road bike with cheaper modern stuff. It's a great way to learn about bikes and to get into the sport inexpensively. The tourney derailleurs are also far far superior to the older rear derailleurs found on road bikes from the 1980's.

The differences between Tourney models are gimmicky. They all work about the same.
