The only time I've ever written images to the SD card - set to overflow - on my D500 was early when I first bought it and I forgot to replace the XQD card in the camera after downloading images from a prior shoot.

I put maybe 150 photos on the SD card that day.  I can't say I really noticed any difference until I got home and realized the camera didn't have the XQD card in it.  I haven't made that mistake since.
