Drill, then assemble, then finish.
Drilling doesn’t have to be a super precise operation. I used the kreg shelf pin jig on my shop cabinet project and drilled all the holes before assembly using only a spacer made of scrap to position the jig. No finish, but I lightly ran a drill with a countersink bit in each hole to clear the tearout.

Drilling after assembly makes sense if you won’t have the same reference edge before assembly.
