That would be to warm up fluid...from my understanding the fluid has to hit the set temp they want. All to achieve smoother shifting and warm the vehicle up to reduce emissions.
I drive with an extremely light foot. Rough shifts shouldn't be an issue which is what the main concern seemed to be on another thread I viewed. I just want it to lock up during summer. Winter which it will be driven more for safer travels particularly​. I would leave it to adjust itself most likely. At least until up to operations temp. Current driving conditions for my time of day are around 40-60. No real issue with fluids at these temps. Just my thoughts for that. When I hit winter and have -20 and lower again that's another story.
