The wax is an albative, protective covering that the sun and water erode over time. If you put the decals over wax, they may not adhere properly and may peel off over time.
I'm not sure why the decal guy is saying to put them on a waxed surface, he may have been in a hurry and mis-spoke. I'm with the others, put the decals on a clean, un-waxed surface, and then have your wax guy avoid running his buffer over the decals. That area should be hand-polished.
