I never seal root ends.

No, don't pull and seal, avoid unecessary messing with the root ball.

No, don't pull and seal, avoid unnecessary messing with the root ball.

I never heard about sealing the cutted root ends and I never did it too, don´t worry.
New fine roots might grow from these cuts so sealing them would in my opinion do more bad than good.
