Is the use of an over patch to better control explosive gas turbulence behind the bullet during barrel time?

The over powder patch is when shooting patched round balls. For conical bullets you'd want a wool wad.

The OPP will help protect the main patch from the powder charge. It's much. Cheaper than using a wool wad.
