In my case, I have screw on lens hoods that match some of my filters, so that when using step-down rings I can still use a hood.

Daisy, Screw-on hoods is something I have been meaning to look into. But thus I haven't had any problems with just snapping the hood on after adjusting the CPL. I know OP who have the screw-on hoods and it sounds like a time-saver.

Screw-on hoods won't necessarily have the correct shape & size to properly protect the lens from flare.  If they're the soft rubber collapsible type, they won't protect from a bump or fall.
