Wrap at inserts only works on inserts that use an opening rather than a void... Best bet would be to model the finishes parametrically within the niche family.

That's correct join geometry will not work in this circumstance. You'd either have to put up with it or model small bits of plasterboard wall separately, as well as a plasterboard floors... Will be a nightmare to change though. I'd put up with the lines and use the linework tool to remove them where they are an issue. HTH.
