Can a bad actor use the ip address my VPN generates against me?

I have to use a VPN for a job helping people figure out resolutions to their problems in a software. There are circumstances where I might need to remote access the software account myself to look at the issue. within this software there is a system log that logs all events on that software, including when I log into it remotely, this log includes an IP address that changes every time I connect my vpn, but, I might need to stay connected to that vpn for several hours while I'm servicing. During the time that my IP address is static due to my VPN still remaining active, is there anything malicious that a a bad actor could do using that IP address that would effect me if they knew my IP address would appear in their logs? Or is the fact that the IP address is not my literal address enough to protect me in any practical way?

A VPN uses shared IPs to keep you anonymous online. Many people would have had the same IP as you at the same time - so no
