post tax, or more commonly called "after tax 401k" contributions, are one part of the "mega back door roth".. they make sense if your employer offers either "in service withdrawls" prior to retirement age of aftertax funds to do a rollover to a roth ira, or in plan conversions to Roth.
if neither of these are offered, and you arent close to terminating your employment with that employer, it isn't the best deal.
if you have one of the rollover options, its basically the same type of thing as a "backdoor roth".
i do both. backdoor roth and megabackdoor roth (aftertax 401k -> roth ira)
