Yes. Signing anything will reveal the public key.

The private key is never revealed in signatures. Otherwise Bitcoin wouldn't be secure as signatures are used in transactions.

Wallet address it is not the public key by itself. If for a simple it's public key hash.
You may not afraid about private key. Ask yourself: what does signature is by itself? If for a simple it's encrypted hash of private key. You can't reestablish private key through signature.
