Grout between new tiled shower walls looks wet.


Hello
I was here about a year ago with help on redoing my bathroom.
Thanks to the advice here, I finished it.
I have 12" tiles on my bathroom shower walls. I think it's 1/8" spacers.
I put the grout sealer on twice.
Showered days later, and the grout appears wet in several places. Let it try completely and put another coat of sealer on.
Still, it appears wet in many places. Even now, about 20hrs after shower, it appears wet in some places.

I thought the water should only repel.
Should I be worried?
