My answer is this:
1. Of course, it will not help, if You will work that station JUST that
time. But if You are not able to work it, You will QSY and than You
need to have that station in BAND MAP for later. 
2. More - You still need that info in bandmap, because when You are
S@P You need to know, who is on that frequency, not to waste time
to wait when he will give his call.
3. In case when You are running statiom, probably will not use the
space for DUPE CHECK at all, so there is no danger to fill bandmap
with bad info.
