Does the type of paint you use in a particular room affect the room acoustics or is it something that doesn't matter either way?

I may not be the best person to answer this but as far as I know, the type of paint doesn't affect the acoustics in any way. The only effect would be if the paint changes the proposity (measure of the void/empty spaces) of the material. Proposity on its own has a great effect on sound. For instance, you'll realize that open pore foams are used as absorbers to damp reflections.

It's been a long time since I had physics, but no, paint type won't usually have a measurable effect on acoustics. Now, it might change your perception of the acoustics, but it would be purely psychological.
