I like to fool around with settings a lot, what do you tend to do with this setting? Do you lower the shadows or raise the highlights? Does it stay set until you change it? Thanks

You change it as you see the need to do so, and it does stay set until next change.

A high contrast sunny street scene with both bright and shadow areas where you want to see detail could see you fiddling to raise the shadows and maybe also lower the highlights. The adjusts are done to get the jpeg result that you like.

But to me it's all too much to be wasting time and effort fiddling in the field when you could be simply taking photos. So I shoot raw+jpeg and sort out problem shots later from the raw file.
