Bute helps ease pain, soreness, and swelling. In the amounts being allowed by the FEI it would not cover up any pain, and would wear off before it could cover much new pain.
If the product in quesetion is used in excess(say 4-5 grams or so) it could possibly cover up some mild pain, but not a sever lamness, like say a hoof abcess.
