Yes, this makes sense. If you have bare wood without stain it is common in my very humid neck of the woods to apply a penetrating sealer prior to the application of the polyurethane finish.
If you go with stained wood floors I believe that the sealer needs to be a surface sealer rather than a penetrating sealer.
Either way, if you reside in an environment that has sustained high humidity levels during all or part of the year it isn't a frivolous expense.
