Yes, fex when doing some math on Epcos cores with the ue and ui data given one finds that the cores without gap actually have a gap of about 10-20um, which is no surprise as the force clamping the cores is not that high, and the cores are flexing a bit under load.

I guess it would be possible to lap the mating surfaces even more, but not cost effective.

One could benefit from a tiny air gap in forwards converters aswell, to reduce remanence, but at the price of higher magnetising current and probably worse voltage peaks.

Here is a few links
Runo's Power Design

And some more material:
Revision to Fundamentals of Power Electronics
listen! Can you hear that ...
