My dad (who fixed appliances for a living for over 30 years) insists 
that such dryers are generally not terribly reliable (in that mode), 
and my own experience agrees with that.  I've used 2 different dryers 
(different make, model, and even energy source) that had such modes. 
They both had the same issues:  Sometimes they worked fine.  Often 
they finished before all the clothes were adequately dry. 
Occasionally, both dryers would just run and run until I noticed they 
were still running and shut them off manually.  Not good...
