Senior moment on GX9 AFF and AFC focus features

Did I read somewhere that AFF (Auto Focus Flexible) will automatically switch to AFC (Auto Focus Continuously) if the subject matter warrants it? If the answer is “yes” then why wouldn’t I just set to AFF if I want continuous focus? Is there a lag time for the camera to recognize the need for AFC versus having it set to AFC in the first place?

The reason for this question is I can have a custom setting for AFF but, I cannot for AFC. I have to move the Focus Mode Lever to set AFC. To have a custom setting for birds in flight I can set AFF and let camera switch automatically or I have to remember to set the lever. Obviously, my goal is for the bird to be in focus and to minimize the steps required by the operator to achieve this.
