Painting cabinets/sanding question

Hi all! Hoping I can get some advice here! I am painting my kitchen cabinets - originally 90’s style golden oak.

I sanded enough to scuff them up, but not to bare wood. Then used a deglosser for a quick scrubbing as well.

I primed with one coat of Zinzzer BIN yesterday. Today I took some 220 sandpaper to it, and noticed that in a few spots the primer sanded off the outside edges just a bit. It held great to flat, smooth surfaces, but some of the edges/corners look a little “antiqued” after sanding.

Is this a concern? Or normal for this stage in the process? Do I need to prime a second coat or just stop stressing and keep the sandpaper block away from the outside edges? ‍:)

Thanks In advance for any advice!
