Will 3M Command strips damage the paint?

I'm considering using 3M Command strips to hang some lightweight pictures on the walls of my new apartment. These walls are painted taupe, and I don't want to mess up that paint when I eventually move out. Will the adhesive on these strips take any paint with them when they're removed? Do they come off easily?

I see these things recommended all over the place, but I haven't found specific mentions of their use on paint. If it makes a difference, this is an 80-something-year-old building with a brand new paint job.
