So, a last bit of info I found while trying to come to grips with whether to use anti-seize on the threads ...the below thread discusses and then links to several other engineering resources discussing this.

In general, it appears OK and may even be a good idea to use anti-seize, but only on the threads, not the seat of the bolt interface to the wheel.
