Yes. Just as carpet padding protects the rug from the floor, so does a cushion for these surfaces. It also protects the floor since backings can be somewhat rough. Padding provides a surface between the two.
Sizing is as essential to padding as the rug and should be slightly smaller, so it lies flat. This way, the rug is secured to the floor and guards against potential tripping. A good rule to follow is that the pad should be one inch less on all four sides of the rug or two inches less for each dimension.
