I have seen pictures of assembling spoke wheels
with the spokes and felloe painted and finished,
and of wheels being asssembled without finish.

What is the best way to do it?

Personally, I prefer to paint after assembly. The thought being, the paint will seep into all the joints and seems and seal up the whole assembly. However, the steel parts should be primed first, in case moisture does creep in.

I prime the metal and prime all spoke wood then assemble and paint assembled wheel. jb

I painted before assembly, and that worked fine. My Stutzman wheels are assembled, of course, so they'll be painted that way. Either way is fine, but I think post-assembly has the edge for the reason Jerry stated. But I would certainly do any spoke sanding before putting them together.
