When shooting full manual, set DR to AUTO? X-E1

My apologies if this has been asked before. I did a search and couldn't find the answer.

If I'm shooting with manual aperture, shutter speed and fixed ISO (below 400), should I set DR to AUTO?

I was taking some still life test shots with my X-E1 this morning and at one point the DR was highlighted red or orange in the Q menu. I forget what it had been set on, possibly DR200 with ISO 400, but as I started changing settings DR changed colors in Q menu. I set it to auto and all appeared fine.

Thanks in advance.
