What you should do is put the vehicle in Park, then let it cool down for 5 minutes or so. When you put the vehicle in park it turns the Regen function off. By letting the vehicle run for several minutes longer your giving the engine enough time to burn off the excess fuel injected on the exhaust stroke. If you just turn the vehicle off, the extra fuel can sit inside the cylinders and when the rings cool off, wash the cylinder walls and drain to the oil pan. This will remove the necessary lube on those cylinders as well as dilute the oil.
Anytime I approach my destination and regen has just started or is still running by the time I arrive, I perform the above.
