Every boat is different so you may have to experiment what works for you. I do not think you can make a statement for all sailing vessels. I have seen their storm tactics video and they explain that roller furlers may provide enough windage to hold the bow down without unfurling any but they also explain that ketches, yawls, sloops, etc all perform differently and you need to practice in different conditions to get it right.
