It provides primarily a gloss finish and provides a small amout of protection. Lacquer is known to adhere to most surfaces, and can be removed with lacquer thinner. You should only use Deft and lacquer thinner in very well ventilated areas.

I have no idea what lamps and dents you are speaking of, to understand their connection/association to "finishes". Define what "lamps" are. Define what "dents" are. What finish or finishes are you referring to..... the paint finish or the Deft finish?
Again, this statement of yours is not understood by me. ----> "... we are still having issues with denting and sticking."
What do you mean by "denting and sticking" ?
If you suspect the Deft is the root of the problem, then I would suspect the Deft is outdated. All lacquer blends/mixtures have a shelf life. Your particular spray can may be outdated, despite it having recently been on some store's shelf. Not all stores clear their shelves of outdated and/or old product and an unknowing customer can have difficulties with a "defective" (outdated) product. Some numerical codes on cans are often misunderstood, so a typical customer doesn't know how to interpret a code date. If your can doesn't have an expiration date in plain English and you don't understand the code, call Deft and ask. Their tech service number should be on the can's label, somewhere.

While lacquer is a liquified type of plastic, it contains a much higher, and stronger combo of solvents. As such it isn’t considered a durable finish, and as you’ve found out, can leave marks when heavy items are placed in them
You can remove the lacquer somewhat easily with a a variety of solvent or water base strippers
