Above, I wrote green area instead of blue charging area. Where the blue line gets wider is the sweet spot for maximum braking.
Reading on PriusChat, Prii have better widgets than the Niro for knowing when the physical brakes are activated (besides the funky feel). With increasing experience in my Niro, it is clear to me that if you never exceed moderate braking, the disc brakes are never engaged until you have reached a complete stop to hold the car. Strictly hard braking, 99% of which can be avoided. Brakes on hybrids usually go 75,000 miles or more before service.
