Default Question about reserving and unreserving GIMPS exponents

Sorry if this has been answered before, sometimes people give me obvious search terms which I never thought of:

Anyway...

If I get a GIMPS exponent, immediately put it on hold so I can use the Prime95 feature that says about how long it will take, and then decide it's too big and unreserve it: Is that a problem for the project?

Put another way, if I unreserve an exponent, does it immediately go back into rotation, or does it go into some sort of NO MAN'S LAND where it sits for a long time.

I'm sorry that I can't ask this more succinctly, I hope you guys understand my question.
