Engine Maintenance Mode

So I see that the car will notify me when it wants to do an EMM gas burn. My question is can I delay this burn until I know I'll be driving downhill for the 10-15 minutes it will take to run this cycle or should I just put the car in Hold mode for this stretch of my commute after I see this warning?

I figure if the car is going to do this then I want to get the most use of the gas during this burn.

you will use less gas if you do not move ( set in park) but life time MPG will go up.

If the trip is going to use gas later then don't sit it out.

and If you are almost 100 electric others have said better to move and get higher RPM and a real run of the engine.
