You are correct. The flacking is caused by movement in that joint, something you will not stop. Any hard finish that bridges that joint will break when the wood moves. I would suggest cut the top joint with a v cutter in a router, refinish and then cut open the finish at the bottom of the v. That will allow for the movement.

Another option would be to sand enough to remove the lacquer that is bridging the joint or carefully cut the top of the joint and then respray with the special automotive clear-coat that is used on the flexible bumpers
