I've done so for many years, but in my case it's for consistency: I terminate all assignment statements [1] with semicolons; an anonymous function is no different than any other expression to me (first class value).

Similarly, since "local function foo() end" is syntactic sugar for an assignment statement, I also terminate that with a semicolon.

[1] as well as standalone function-call statements.
