We have 2000 sq ft of cabin grade wood we are laying. Not quite halfway done, but am starting to prepare for finishing. Is there some kind of epoxy or other product that can be squeegeed across the entire floor to fill all imperfections? And if so, will it need a finish on top of that? We aren’t wanting to stain them as we like how they look naturally darkened by just a finish. Attached is a photo of our unfinished floors. You can see all the little spots that could be filled, so not really wanting to go through and do each individual spot.

Go to a flooring store. There are products that are used to fill holes and cracks, but it will also fill wood pores, so I would sand and finish first coat on your your floors with poly or something, then fill holes and screen floor. You’ll probably need to put another coat of finish then.
Good luck, Kimball

I agree, there are products designed just for flooring ,,especially now days ,that there are so many rustic applications.
Not sure epoxy would be a good choice, . As stated I would contacts some flooring installers and finishers and see what they recommend
