The finish, “varnish & paints” will dull the blades, a nail or piece of metal will knick the blade.
An option is to have 2 sets of blades , use one set for removing finishing and other set to plane raw wood. Might save you sharpening blades each time.
I have a dedicated 6” jointer that I only use on used lumber, another jointer for RAW ,clean lumber.
I don’t run used lumber through my planer, I use a drum sander if I am not sure.
