While the moisture content of the wood will be quite low compared to that of your cigars, I will guess that the total moisture capacity of the wood is also much lower. If the boxes have been in a controlled environment long enough to stabalize (as has been suggested), then they will not compete with the cigars for moisture. A properly sealed box will be a closed system, so the moisture content will remain constant. A box that has been opened will reach a stable moisture level over time, given that it is in a controlled climate.

Think of it this way, if you put a hot object in a bucket of cold water, the water warms and the object cools to a uniform temperature. The reverse would also be true (cold object / hot water). If you put a an object at room temperature into a bucket of water at room temperature, they both will remain at room tempature. So it is with cigars and boxes. Once they have both reached a stable moisture content, if the environment is held constant, the moisture contents will not change.
