2012 Subaru Impreza: Brake Break-in Procedure

While flipping through the owner's manual for the engine break-in procedure on our 2012 Subaru Impreza, I found this page for new brake pads and linings. This sort of break-in occurs during normal driving. So it isn't something we'd typically acknowledge. But the parking brake section is interesting.

How many of you take the time to break-in your new parking brake as this manual suggests?
