If its sealed “permantly”, no. Permanantly as in drywalled, taped, etc.
If it is cheesily tape sealed to keep heat from escaping, yes after asking. (if the seller is home) Carefully if the homeowner is not home.
If it is hermetically sealed, as in, the one time use saran wrap like weather barrier. I will only after the O.K.
I’ve only run into one that had such a perfect (temporary) seal that i felt like i was “damaging” it when carefully removing it to get in the attic. The lady must have spent 20 minutes with a hair dryer shrink wrapping it to size. I bet i spent 5 minutes carefully trying to remove it so as to be able to somewhat return it to its former glory.
