Currently d6 is a weakness due to us not being able to attack it with a pawn. d6 means that we have two pieces attacking that square(queen, bishop) instead of one(bishop). This means that he can't take the pawn. d6 would otherwise be a good outpost for his knight. If we were to do e5, d5 would also become a weakness for the same reason. Again black often strengthens the square by the move d5.
Since stockfish has placed his knight on b5 which is one move away from d6, I would prefer to stop stockfish from doing Nd6+ next turn.
