Clean paint off of dropouts?

Someone brought a new bike into the shop today and it still had paint on the rear dropouts. I thought he should clean said dropouts with a razor blade to get the paint off and allow the axle nuts to stick better (single speed). Am I correct? I've just never seen an old bike with painted flats on the dropouts...
