In my opinion - frequency (or doing it at all) may be more important than
what lube is used.  I just use a drop of oil, but often.

I have a TR3 friend who has a ritual wherein he does this.  Every time he
checks the oil - before he wipes the dip stick clean he touches it to each
of the linkage connections.  Looks like a Triumph priest blessing the motor.
