choke on?

We all know that in cold weather you need to use some choke to start a carbed bike. We also know that if you ride for a long time with the choke on, you could foul your spark plugs. But what if I accidentally leave the choke on when the bike is off for an extended period of time, is there a possibility of doing any damage to the fuel system or anything else? I'm talking about leaving it on overnight or for a day or two or longer.

from my noob understanding of how a choke works and its purpose, i would say you wouldnt damage anything if the bike isnt running.

If the motor's not running the choke isn't doing anything
