Yes, the military modelers, from whom I learned about Future, overcoat decals with a coat of Future to help them disappear. I think that the idea is to have a similar finish on the entire model, prior to applying a flat finish. I can’t say I’ve noticed a huge difference, but on cars where I am not going to be weathering much, or at all, like my in-progress GN plywood cars, or some passenger cars, I think it does improve the final product.

I’ve not OVERCOATED decals with Future.  I assume it helps the decals lay down better and that is why you do it? 
I use Testor’s dullcoat to eliminate the Future shine.  Sometimes a second coat is required.
