To answer the question, no. Real drysuit underwear
is designed to be next to the skin so that it can
perform it's sweat wicking function. If you have
something between you and the Thinsulate or Polar-
tech, the sweat doesn't reach the "wicking", and
therefore keeps the sweat against your skin. But,
with that said, I do wear a nylon bathing suit
between my skin and undies... note that it isn't
a cotton bathing suit or briefs or boxers or etc.
Think of it as a chamois or really thin sponge
pulling the sweat and other moisture away from
your skin and holding it against the outter shell
of the drysuit.
