It looks to me like that in neutral it moves more fluid than in park. the extent of the difference is unknown to me. So my guess is that the fluid being moved in park would warm up faster than the fluid moving while in neutral. But the second you put it in gear, the cold fluid from the TC is added to the mixture and cools it back down.
So you still have a theory... of someone who's guessing
If you you had fluid being pumped and idled long enough for the engine thermostat to open you'd start to get some heat exchange opposite the intended way from the fluid being pumped thru the radiator trans "cooler".
