How do you handle optical stabilization on Olympus cameras for zooms?

Potentially a strange question, and I will admit that I am just more curious than anything else.

I know that on the Olympus cameras, such as the EM5 Mark 2 that I own, you can enter the focal length.

This is great for primes. And potentially zooms, if you set your length and leave it there. But let's say you're out shooting birds or other wildlife and want the ability to adjust the focal length. (such as the 100-300mm Panasonic, for example. And yes, I know that lenses has stabilization. So does the 300mm Olympus. But the 40-150 f4-5.6 doesn't for example)

Do you go through the laborious task of setting the OS for whatever focal length you're using? Or do you just leave it alone, as we all did in the past with non-stabilized sensors and lenses?

I know.....I know....this question almost answers itself. but I was just curious how others approached this.
