One thing i’ve Heard, I remember not where, was that it has something to do with the differential drying between the ends (open to the environment) and the middle of the board where drying is slower. Obviously the quicker you dry the more this would be the case, if what I remember is true. That’s why sealing the end grain is practiced.
