This is common in competition cooking. It gives a blast of flavor to each bite. This is very common in comps.

I have occasionally sprinkled regular rub on my pork after pulling. I typically don't do this though. it all comes down to how much you want to wow people and how much effort those little incremental improvements are worth to you.

Yep, thumbs up on Gunpowder, and I have not tried the ones from Big Poppa. I do a super fine grind on one of my homemede rubs and jokingly call it "gold dust". I also do a super fine grind on Dizzy Pig's Dizzy Dust and use it as a finishing rub too.
