Moisture content in wood changes whether it has a finish applied or not. Lacquer for example will slow the movement of moisture in and out of the lumber, but does not stop it.

Numerous examples abound relating to cracked table tops when wood movement wasn’t accounted for.
It is most glaring when the end grain is bound, such as tops wrapped with trim or applied breadboard ends.

I’m not sure you’re going to change anyone’s mind on this topic.
