Sealing gloss tile before grout

The tile shop is recommending sealing the tile before grouting to stop the grout from bleeding onto the tile. This is a dark grout. Seems like overkill. Thoughts?

Welcome, Chris.

What specifically is the tile? Name brand, make and model.

Same information for the grout you intend to use.
