As soon as you remove the load, the voltage springs back up.
That's how electricity and batteries work.

"discharge to 96V" is literal. Discharge to 96V and then stop. Voltage not under discharge doesn't matter.

Trying to discharge repeatedly to make a NiMH battery STAY under any given voltage is usually a recipe for failure.

A cell completely empty of any usable charge will rest at about 1.2V. Thus a 120 cell pack that has had 100% of its usable capacity removed will still seek about 144V.
