Charles is correct, the filler will not color the same as the wood.

Fuming penetrates rather deeply compared to standard finishes. You can make a pore filler that will work if you combine the oaks sanding dust with a binder. I sometimes apply danish oil and sand aggressively (150 grit) to create a slurry that can be spread around to fill the pores. This is left to dry (a few days) then repeated. You could also add the dust to a clear filler like Charles mentions and use it to make a slurry for pore filling.
