I spread glue around the sides of the holes
using a little stick. I don’t usually coat the
dowel. I get little squeeze out when the
dowel is put in the first part. That’s ideal
imo. I wipe it off and then proceed to assemble
the parts together.

Method-4. Do not use glue at all. Use wedges to expand the dowel.

I do method 1 and 2 combined.

Spread a thin layer around the dowel with a latex-gloved hand, then add a drop to each hole with a condiment-style bottle. I size my holes ~1/32’’ too deep to allow for the glue’s volume.

Cheap flux brush to spread glue in hole and onto dowel = no missed spots and less excess glue.

Wedged dowels = hard core. Very nice.

A little hint on the flux brush, trim about 1/3 to 1/2 the length off the bristles. Makes it less messy!

If you are able, find a source for “glue capsules”.
