I have read here about additives settling. Do you shake your containers before pouring them into your vehicle to mix up the lubricant?

I don't when doing oil changes, but did before sending in a VOA sample.

What’s the reasoning behind this. Wouldn’t the engine mix it up enough?

If the oil container sits too long and additives settle they may not all pour out of the container leaving some still in the bottle/jug.
