Only if you want it to stick. I used to top coat over sanded Dupont Colar Epoxy primer after sanding it. It is just harder to sand than ureathane primer.

I was confused? You can top coat or spray sealer over the epoxy if you can sand it smooth without sanding throught it. There are several people on this that use a epoxy primer that can be used for bare metal, surfacer and primer. A couple of coats of primer surfacer should be all you need unless they are real rough.

One the small flat spots use a cut down paint stick and the small flat curves a ruibber hose. Save yourself some time use one coat in the jambs. Samething with the body prime and block the metal worked areas first as they will need more than the straight panels. No sense with lot of high dollar primer surfacer on the flooor and not on the car.

Don't pile up primer surfacer in your jambs as there's no reason for this extra material unless you have some defects to fill and sand out.

I use my detail gun to touch up sand throughs. Final sand paper grit depends on the paint you are going to use. The most common are Ureathane 800-1000 and Acrylic enamel 400-500.

Don't you consider the Door jams to be Part of the CAR?? Sure they should get treated just as you would any other part of the body. That means the same cleaning, de-waxing, sanding and priming.
