Default Sealing Wood Blank Ends after turning

Now achieving a finish I am happy with. However, noticed that an American Patriot made with Curupay wood that cracked and fell out of my truck and lay in the grass over night (yeah, yeah, I know) had the CA finish begin to separate at the cracks (expected) but also to some extent at the ends next to the metal parts.
I ensure I get good coverage to the ends, but often need to sand the excess build-up back for a good fit. Obviously I am exposing wood in the process. Do you seal or otherwise treat the ends of the turned blanks before assembly to help prevent this?
