If there is wood core there, I'd want it protected. But I have to admit that when I drilled a maybe 3/4" hole in my cockpit floor for chartplotter cables, all I did to protect the plywood core was to paint the wood with quick epoxy, not grind back, fill hole, redrill, etc. The project had already taken so long I couldn't face another round trip while epoxy cured.
If I were potting a hole that big, I think I'd try to fashion a temporary sleeve to go in the middle and reduce the epoxy volume.
