AAD Ground reference: effect of DZ/airport difference Can't Post

A question about how AAD adjust their ground reference (all brands, really, but I have a Cypress):

The Farm DZ (LZ, manifest, hanger, packing area, beer refrig, etc) is located about 130 ft below the airport runway elevation. (IOW, the unit is turned on, and almost all non-jumping time is spent, at the DZ). The drive over is about 4 miles, pretty much flat until we ascend a hill (over the course of 60 sec or so) and arrive at the airport. Once there, time on the ground before lift off might range from 5 to 10 minutes.

Would a Cypres reset it's ground reference elevation to that of the airport?

How about other AAD brands?

(Yes, I did RTFM, but it only spoke generally about making adjustments during the day to account for weather changes. I'm hoping someone might have a bit more specific knowledge about how it adjusts and whether the time spend at the airport would cause it to adjust it's ground reference upward.)
