best product to fill nail holes -basement wall?

Removing basement paneling, and the grid nailed to cinder block behind it.
Wall appears to have a coat of Drylok.
Plan to leave the wall unfinished, therefore want to fill the nail holes and paint.

Q:
What caulk/product would work best to fill/seal the holes then paint?

Thanks for your time-

Mortar or thinset would be best. A setting compound like Durabond would also work. If the nail holes are tiny [no blow out] you could use caulking.

Thanks for your reply-

Have some Quikrete Fast Set Repair Mortar that would work.
Would that be a big advantage over a good concrete repair caulk?

If a paintable caulk will work to fill the cinder block nail holes and provide a good seal, that's preferred option (EZ Button!)

Any recommendations for best product appreciated-
