Notice the caveats.
The secondary and any other bands of a multi-speed modern trans probably wont see that much additional wear because the ring set is dealing with a moving car. In a powerglide, the low band is gone before anything else so that's the rebuild point.

OTOH, the majors unlock the TC between shifts for a reason, albeit for comfort and smoother shifts.

Worse case get an analysis on the fluid looking for band residue.
Thanks. Honda transmissions don’t have bands though, if that matters. What about extra wear from always running at a high line pressure?
