I would guess the biggiest contributer to brake wear is the brake function on cruise which only works on the rear.

I know I'm off track with this one, so to get back on, I love Autohold
Auto hold does affect the brakes wear as brakes with this feature on are fully released when the speed goes above a small threshold value and net torque is positive on the wheels.
