they very well could have and I believe they were in fact. I have sevral S/B Tabloids that in fact show liners that could be applied to the inside of house cars for just this purpose.

Subject: [STMFC] DS cars in grain service

Were double sheathed cars regularly used in grain service? It seems to
me that grain would infiltrate between the inner and outer sheathing
and attract vermin. Better to use a single sheathed car and let the
escaped grain fall to the ground to feed the local fauna.
