Thickened without Cabosil presumably means wood flour. I should think they are fine. Cabosil does add some hardness but the joints will be plenty strong without it, stronger than the surrounding wood. The important thing is that there are no dry areas in the joint caused by too-thin epoxy flowing out. The glass covering adds a lot of strength too. If you are worried, try some test joints on scrap wood with and without Cabosil. Let them cure in a warm place for a few days before breaking them.
