By those of us who don't like our flex ends to get frayed in the terminals, yes. Sometimes 2 ferrules side by side in one cage, depends on the size and what is being wired.
I have used them to make a rather neater job of the blue commando plugs when the flex is a bit inadequate.

Also used with the more aggressive large sized lever wagos, again to stop the end getting chopped off.

Sometimes handy to group more than one wire, when you want the through loop unbroken, even if the connection at some mid point is removed.

My crimper for the small sizes (less than 1mmsq, remember I do electronics) is the CK ratchet model, and is not a hex crimp, but puts in single row of rat bites on the flat of a depressed "D" profile. Never had any issues with it, and on the odd one that has been sectioned (*), the post compression filling factor is excellent even after the full set of tracked vehicle vibration tests.... I use a hex for the larger sizes, and a hand pumped hydraulic hex jaws model for the really large ones.

* after tests to Def Stan 35 part 5

For those not familiar, I can't find the tracked vehicle test on youtube, but something military and electronic is being shaken to the nearest equivalent US army standard here Normally some hours on each of 3 axes, or to first failure, whichever occurs first.
