Agreed. No measurable brake pad wear from using auto hold function. There may be miniscule loss of pad material but nothing that would warrant accelerated brake pad wear.

Now maybe if AH tried to engage at 30 MPH you might see some wear and tear but since it only engages at less than .5 mph there is not enough friction or heat generated to permit brake pad wear.

I also like the function. It definitely comes in handy at times.
