Honestly, this is probably fine. I have found stories of other people doing this online in reverse for upgrade purposes (put a 2017 board in a 2016 housing) The 2016 and 2017 models are extremely similar (I tried cross referencing part numbers for the Apple components, but of course they’re different, doesn’t mean it’s not compatible though) and all the connector placement looks identical, the logic board replacement procedures are even lumped together in Apple’s documentation. I was hoping to find some technical documentation to compare some connectors and such, but all the places I’ve looked essentially say to use the 2016 board as a reference for the 2017. So I would hazard you’re in the clear. If it was a 2015, that wouldn’t be the case. But I would be curious to know how you make out.
Please note these 12” machines are sort of tempermental and I can’t stand working on them because the internal layout is a disaster. So be patient and take your time.
