You are absolutely correct in your thinking; it is a good idea to, at least, finish the edge of the panel before glue up, especially if you are applying color (stain/dye). Since you’r not gluing the panel into the frame, there isn’t really a downside to pre-finishing. Pre-finishing the entire door also helps eliminate and finish build-up in the corners.
