Does having a domain parked impact it when it becomes a website?

Does having a domain name parked with a parking provider (Trafficz) until it is developed into a website, impact the domain in any way, such as being rejected/blacklisted by Google or its ranking in results in Google?

The landing pages have regular/typical consumer content/search terms.

I am forced by my registrar to have nameservers entered for my all domain registrations and all registrars that I have used have the same stipulation.

I don't need some of my domains to have any landing pages but I don't know if there is any other option.

I was there when Webwork asked Matt Cutts that same question in a hallway conversation at PubCon in Vegas a couple of years ago.

Matt said that while they certainly want to keep parked domains out of the search results, that doesn't create poison for the domain once it is unparked.

Once the domain gets real content and begins to develop a legitimate web presence, Google will judge it for what it is.

Great. Thanks for a "phew!" reply.
I'm not worried about current search results but the name is unique and not something we want to lose.
