I make my starters from dme separate from the recipe. I usually decant the liquid from any starters larger than .75L.

I do not alter the recipe or kit.

If it is a small starter not decanted the addition is not enough to be significant. If it is a decanted starter there is no starter "beer" to change the recipe.
