Changing Lanes to Minimize Curvature?

I was driving on a four-lane with significant curves. There were no other cars around, but NOA changed lanes, and I noticed a brief message about curves.

Does the car change lanes to minimize the amount of turning needed (e.g. curving to the left, changes to left lane then back to the right lane)?

LOL, why not? Don't you try to reduce the curvature and switch lanes when there's no traffic? Easier on the shoulders of the tires. I'm impressed if the car does it. I'm always afraid it'll veer off and pull a Tiger, hit the outer curb and fly off the road.
