I pre-finish rails/styles, inside edges only, for the exact reasons JBrow points out (final sanding). This depends on the finish of course since some blending/feathering will inevitably be needed. A real pain in the a$$, but it does avoid messing with any final sanding of the topcoat in places that are impossible to do well.

If you don’t have a topcoat that requires any attention after applying, definitely stick to only finishing the panel and leave the frame for later.
