The larger memory demand is only if a machine is doing P-1'ing before starting the LL'ing.

However, lately almost no candidates are ever assigned for LL'ing or DC'ing without P-1 already having been done. There are "specialists" who focus on doing the P-1'ing for others to then do the LL'ing, much like there are "specials" who first do the TF'ing for the P-1'ers.

But if you leave your settings as they are, you'll be fine; the allowed memory will simply never be used.
