Heat shrink squeezes resistor. Squeezing a carbon composition resistor will decrease its resistance. Film and ceramic resistors much less affected. Remember when we were kids and played with telephone carbon microphone elements?

Anyone else found a lowering of resistance after heat shrinking terminations
after cool down?
You may have some of that somewhat conductive heat shrink tubing. Good idea
to check the glue for conductivity before use.
