I DO plan to read the label/s of the products I will be using, BUT...

Will an application of fungicide on a lawn interfere with the germination and/or establishment of an overseed job on the same lawn? Is there a waiting period between application of fung. and slice over-seeding a lawn?

Note that I plan to apply granular form fungicide.

Wouldn't it be the same as eating a twinky while taking penecillin?

Not only will it not hurt. Penkoted seed contains fungicide in it's coating.

I agree with FL, many seeds like corn and soybean have a fungicide on them so they don't get munched on while in a warm wet environment in the soil

All depends on the fungicide. READ THE LABEL. It will spelled out for you on the label.

The labels do not address, a number of things. Fungicide manufacturers will not even address this question. Am I wrong?

Usually they do, but your right, not always.

What fungicide are you planning on using?
