Stickering is only beneficial in reducing sticker stain and mold growth while the wood is drying; if it is dry, down below around 15%mc or so, then mold cannot grow and the wood will not benefit from stickering. The big part is how dry the kiln operator really got it; some do dry well, by weight, others just throw it in and color it done. There is no standard, so you need to trust the operator and their integrity. If it is indeed dry, then you can dead stack it with no worries; if it’s still moist inside, best to sticker it. Whatever you do it will only moisten/dry up to around 10-12% outside the kiln anyway.
