Dark period before harvest

Hope everyone is well.
The gereral tip is to harvest in darkness.
May as well let the plants use all the energy from their last photosynthesis and terpenes dissipate under light.
To max the terps by leaving them in the dark another 12 hours is a no brainer

Been reasearching flushing a bit lately and noticed a few gardeners are using 72+ hour dark period before harvest.
Some ppl recommend using the time to flush ( I'd be more inclined to run the dehumidifier at 40% and let them dry out a bit )
Suggesting a 1-3% increase in THC from the 72 hour *night* before harvest.
Anyone got any experience with light-fasting before harvest?

Is it just stoner's science
