That's the stuff - Scotch brand IS 3M by the way. The varnish covering would certainly seal it off from the WD40.

If it happens in the future, try peeling a bit up and getting the WD under the tape, on the glue and slowly peel it away, squirting or dribbling it on as you go. I have sometimes had to work my way along like that.
