Ahh. It now occurs to me that even if you know it will never be hot enough to operate the overheat proteciton, having the feature activated would mean that the system must be awake enough to monitor the temperature. And perhaps to monitor the temperature requires some air circulation.
I like road feedback and greatly appreciate the spring suspension on my legacy MS. This, the non-proportional steering yoke, and the hovercraft suspension are the main reasons why my next Tesla will be a M3LR with performance unlock, second hand of course after WW3 is over.
