It depends on the flavor of the cake.  In chocolate it would most likely be fine.  However probably not so good in white or yellow cake. (*although come to think of it, buttermilk is used in scratch Italian cream cakes.)  ...?

AI don't use box mixes, but I use buttermilk in almost all my cakes. It's actually one of the 'must do' things that makes a really great white cake in my opinion. It doesn't actually taste of buttermilk, just bliss the flavour and adds the slightest 'tang'.

I guess buttermilk is the best option. I always take buttermilk in all my cakes.
