Should CNAME records for custom domains with Cloudflare Pages be orange clouded or grey clouded?

When Cloudflare Pages automatically adds the CNAME record for me, it’s orange clouded, but I have to grey cloud it for the verification to work.

After verification passes, Cloudflare Pages seems to work just fine whether I leave it grey clouded or revert it to orange clouded. But is one setting better? Or does it truly not matter at all?

Thank you.

That’s weird. I just now finished adding a custom domain to Cloudflare Pages, and did nothing to DNS. Pages added the record and verified without me having to do anything.

I’d orange-cloud it, though, to hide the source (
