Effect of true/ buffered pedals in FX loop?

I was wondering what the affect of running a buffered bypass through an fx loop is on tone, and in comparison to running it in a signal chain (guitar-pedal-amp).

Depends on what effect, the quality and the design of the buffer and the quality and design of the fx loop. The question is too circumstantial to give you a direct answer.

I'm also interested. Signal loss? Tone color change? What else?

I know all these things occur, but I'm not sure if these changes have occur equally or be as notcieable in an fx loop as opposed to being plugged into the regular input.

yeah it depends on the loop etc. i mean if the loop is already buffered a buffered pedal in the loop is (presumably) gonna make less difference than if the loop isn't buffered.

Non-true bypass pedals add to the noise floor when disengaged, that would be my primary concern.
