I can't find the Superior Sealants Bolt product and do you mean DAP DynaFlex 230 or Dap Alex Ultra 230?

If I primer and paint over the Big Stretch will it still attract more dust than usual caulk that dries completely?

The main area of concern with the Big Stretch attracting more dust would be across the top of the baseboard, vertical runs would be fine. It's just a personal quirk with me that I like the caulking to dry hard, but I know some contractors that use Big Stretch exclusively. I tend to only use it on crown molding because it is typically a problem area. The Bolt caulk should be available at your local independent paint store. Lowes carries White Lightning which is a slightly lower grade than Bolt, but has lots of adhesive, and after re-thinking this, I would probably go with that instead of the 230. Also you will want to have some 80 or 100 grit sandpaper to smooth any areas where your cuts are a little rough, before you caulk.
