Got it.  The original sample becomes a new study population a very
nice design. However the original population is not a
"super-population' in the ordinary sense; that term refers to a
hypothetical population, whereas  yours is real.

If you are doing experiments in your population, the inferences of
those will apply to a super-population (of possible replications of
the experimental procedures), and you should not use a finite
population correction in any of those analyses.  It's a matter of
judgement whether you should use survey analyses at all.
