It can happen but it's more difficult to burn paint with a DA, even at the edges. Paint is thinnest there and so you definitely shouldn't let your orbital linger.
Wax, especially applied with any type of finishing pad with no "cut" will not damage the edge at all.
Just tape off as much and as best as you can, be prepared for a huge "ball" of tape by the time you're done though.
