Rubbing compound on vinyl

My Camaro has the matte black vinyl stripes, and there is one small spot that has a bit more polish on it than the rest of the vinyl. Its really not very noticeable. In fact, I tried to take a picture to add to this post, but it didn't show up at all. It bothers me though. I tried to put every vinyl protectant I could find on it, but as soon as it dries, that one spot looks shinier than the rest. It's not completely glossy in that spot, just a little more glossy than the rest. I am very tempted to just use some rubbing compound and make all the stripes as glossy as that spot. I have heard that you cannot use rubbing compound on vinyl, and I really wonder why that is. Perhaps someone on this forum could tell me why rubbing compound on vinyl is a no-no. This may be a really dumb question, but I don't know the answer, and I figured this would be the best place to ask.
