Take from this what you want to.. This is about the Note II, but the Note 3 would definitely follow suit. And yea, I replied to an old thread, but so what ? It's better than starting a new thread about something that's been discussed a lot already.
Please wait for a Samsung Agent to respond.
You are now chatting with 'Vivan'. There will be a brief survey at the end of our chat to share feedback on my performance today.
Your Issue ID for this chat is
Vivan: Hi, thank you for contacting Samsung Technical Support. How may I help you today?
Me: What type of glass does the Galaxy Note II have ?
Vivan: I understand that you want to know the device specifications.
Vivan: May I know the model number of your phone ? You can find the model number beneath the phone's battery which generally starts with SGH, SCH or SPH .
Vivan: Thank you for the model number.
Vivan: I would like to inform you that this Note II device has the Gorilla Glass 2.
Me: I see.. Is there a specific reason why Corning's website wouldn't have the Note II listed as having Gorilla Glass but it has the Note and Note 3 listed there ?
Vivan: We do not know the inform about this website, however the Note II have the Gorilla glass.
Me: OK.. one more thing..
Vivan: Sure, please go ahead.
Me: Some Note II manuals recommend to not use a screen protector and other model manuals recommend a screen protector, why would that be ?
Vivan: May I know which manuals you have viewed this information?
Me: Just browsing around the internet, i've seen people from different countries post pictures of their manuals
Vivan: I see. It is not recommended to use screen protectors with the phone, but to not get the scratches and issues with sensors, you can use screen protectors.
Me: The S Pen works very well without one. Is that why it's not recommended because of the S Pen ?
Vivan: Yes, you're right. For effective use with Touch screen and S Pen, the screen protectors are not recommended.
Me: Thanks for your answers..
Vivan: You're welcome. Is there anything else I can assist you with?
Vivan: Thank you.

I'm not saying what they say is 100% final, but it is directly from a person that works for Samsung.
