After the delay HSA releases and the car is free to roll like a manual trans would.
After HSA releases the car will roll till it engages the parking lock. This is similar to a normal automatic parking on a hill, once you release the brakes it will roll a little.

Unless yours rolls away, then you have a real issue!
