Default jamb extension joints

First time posting, other then my intro. Wanted some advice from the experts. I have some stained jambs that have been extended and will be painting white. In the past I've filled the voids with light weight, heavy weight, spot putty, and caulking. Don't like the finished results with those products. Any suggestions? Thinking of trying Durhams water putty, or m and h.

Trying to figure out how to add a photo.............

if i'm seeing this right, use caulk. i also like a 50/50 mix of crawfords vinyl spackle and elmers wood filler mixed up in a bit of plastic and piped in to things like that. you could use bondo but that's a bit of overkill i think.

The biggest challenge is that it's an area that will need to move (assuming the door is useful). in that small of a gap, i'd caulk it and let it go. it needs to move and if ya go over it with something that isn't flexible, it will (eventually) crack. caulk retains its flex a bit more...
