Is it feasible to attach an E3 license to a AD synchronized user prior to mailbox migration?

Is it feasible to attach an Office 365 license with Exchange selected to a synchronized user prior to migrating his On Prem mailbox?  Will doing so create a second, duplicate mailbox?

it appears that when a user is assigned a license prior to migration and the email service is enabled, a mailbox was created in the Cloud, while the On Prem mailbox was still being used. Not sure why
