Pretty much the only place I use it is on carbon seatposts or aluminum seatposts in carbon frames. On the bar clamp, it's OK but haven't needed it for any reason, road drop bars or mtb. Some manufacturers say not to use in between the stem and carbon steerers.

Some droppers get sluggish if the set post clamp is too tight and carbon paste can help prevent the seatpost from slipping with less clamp pressure.

Usually the best thing to do is look at the installation instructions for the item and follow the recommendations with respect to grease, carbon paste, torque, etc...

No need for it! Put those things on and go shred!
