Yes,
28mm tire on 25mm rim suffers a bit on aerodynamic (already have 3mm or more overhang).
28mm tire on 23mm rim may suffer a bit more.
Both aren't 28mm tire on 28mm or wider rim anyway. Since you don't bother matching tire width to rim width to begin with, just screw aero and ride what you feel good.

No problems. I have a "spring weather-comfy" setup with 28mm Rubino Pro's on 19 mm rims. Running 75-80 PSI on them. Yes, no as aero, but super smooth to ride, and handles surprisingly well.
