The correct way is to use an epoxy or urethane type repair product to fix the bumper first.
Then use a thin filler or glaze to go over that for final smoothing before primer and top coat.

But that is a different monster than door panels.

If you just used a bodyfiller on door panels to smooth them, it will come off over time.

If the proper prep work is done, and the bodyfiller is done over a repair, then it can be used. But there are limits.

I know.
And I took it as if he was asking if he could use it to smooth out the textures.

So the answer is yes you can. But it WILL fall off.
