Is usr/bin/strip a file destroyer?

I had put a post in .chat concerning strip, but unfortunately there
are no replies yet. I suppose my question was not clear enough (?).
I don't know how to handle the dozen or so of
"/usr/bin/strip:[path+file]: file truncated" messages. Does that mean
that these files won't work any more, are they destructed?
That is chapter 9 of LFS revision 4.0. I used the very same command as
this in the book per copy+paste (not strip-all!).
By the way these messages appeared among uncountable
"/usr/bin/strip:[path+file]:file format not recognized" messages. They
have run over screen like rats and I failed to record the output in a
file, so I can't figure out what files were not recognised or truncated.
Shall I be worried about these messages? Shall I make use of my backup?
Thank you in advance for answer,
