Encoding or not

Folks - I have a 8TB HDD that's filled up with all family videos. Most videos were taken by Sony A6400 (XAVC S 4K 30P 100M). I was about to start Handbrake to reduce the size of all videos to 1080p30Fast and 23 quality but concerned about a statemet I read in an article below. Can somebody validate how true this is? To my naked eye, the videos are indistinguishable to me after a test compression of a few videos but in 20 years, if there is quite a bit of difference with modern chips & monitors, that's something I need to think about

Stop Re-Encoding Videos! - Code Calamity

"Behind the scenes of good TVs and devices is an “Ai” chip that upscales videos to look better on newer screens. With less detail to start with, it won’t look as good as if you didn’t re-encode"

Thanks
