restripping binaries

Is a bad practice to re-strip an executable file?

The program I am building strips binaries automatically. It is very
simple to turn it off. Should I do it?

P.S.: I read PH, it says "strip" will exit cleanly if the binary is
already stripped, and do not strip binaries manually, but nothing about
unnecessary and avoidable restripping.

Thanks and Best Regards,
