Yes it will put stress back into the wood.And most likely cup.
Or crack.
Or maybe you’ll get lucky this time.
My rule is not to force things together with clamps,bricks,cars or large animals.
And I’m not just talking about cutting boards.

Good luck

If you’re correcting a deflection of more than 1/8”, I would recommend against this approach due to the added stress.

Maybe mill the warp out of the board and adjust the end size of the board?

Don’t know about walnut, but once I had some scrap 1 by 1s of oak. They were 2 foot long and I wanted a 2 by 2 butcher block type piece to put on my work table. They were bent pretty good, I clamped them together, glued them with tight bond and beat the hell out of it for several years no problems.
of course Like aj2 said, I could have just been lucky?
