I have variously used Obenaufs oil, Obenaufs HDLP and Lexol conditioner to treat the leather on my bags.
I actually wore mine yesterday in torrential rain and there were no problems with water ingress from the sole or elsewhere.
The scoring tip I picked up from the the military way back when, but I don't personally like to do it preferring the Topy's for their increased grip and lower cost of replacement compared to a new sole.I'd be happy to Topy any of my shoes and boots, but I don't really have anything fancy by way of leather on the soles.
Not a problem for me and I can't recall any such posts in this thread.
You could score the leather sole with a knife or key.Alternatively, look at getting some Topys (a thin rubber sole) applied. Cheap and easy to apply and replace once worn through.
I have used it many times. Apply it when you want your boots to be water resistant-proof. Be sure to wipe off any excess and then after a few days hit with polish if you want some shine, otherwise burnish with a brush
Or use tried and trusted products in the correct manner.

Sam rules as for shoes really. There is no absolute need to so, but there is no harm in doing so.
