Probably a good idea to strip carefully the contact faces
some powder coating is so thick you wont get the sprocket / disc to fit without stripping anyway
to prevent corrosion maybe put a little copper grease on the faces

Strip it 100%.

That area should be masked.
If you love it, lube it.

I powder coated a pair of hubs years ago.
I masked the sprocket and disc mounting surfaces but found the powder coating cracked and flaked away where the spokes pulled against the mounting holes in the hub.
The older I get, the faster I was
