MPPT60/80: When will my charge controller exit Absorption during Enhanced Grid Support mode?

Does the MPPT charge controller still use the 2% of battery capacity threshold to exit Absorption while using Enhanced Grid Support?

Product Line:

On grid installation using the XW or XW+ and MPPT60 or MPPT80 with Enhanced Grid Support Mode

When using Enhanced Grid Support, the MPPT60 and MPPT80 will only use the Absorb Time setting to determine when to exit Absorption.

If the XW is pulling energy from the batteries (Grid Support), the charge controllers will use the Absorb Time setting to finish Absorption.  The 2% threshold is only available during a pure charging cycle.  Generally, in an off-grid scenario or if Enhanced Grid Support is not being used.
