Macbook - charging beyond 80%

I just noticed my battery was "on hold" at 80% while I am updating a website. I'd never noticed that before.

I assume it is to extend the lifecycle of the battery because I have an app that does the same for my samsung phone, notifying me when my phone is 85% charged.  You can change this in apple settings

This is what Apple say:

In macOS Big Sur, Optimised Battery Charging is designed to improve the lifespan of your battery and reduce the time your Mac spends fully charged. When this feature is enabled, your Mac will delay charging past 80% in certain situations.

They don't seem to say what "certain situations" are - anyone know?
