But if you go straight to the race track and put 500 miles of hard driving on the car it may tick down to 9k miles even though you have driven less than 1k miles since your last service.

You can read more about condition based service in your owners manual.
I feel like it doesn't really account for driving habits. I drive in stop and go all the time and it still reads X miles until next service. The X miles drop as I drive more miles, and it doesn't instantly drop further due to the stop and go and gas mashing I do.
It does account for driving conditions. You are not going to see it drop in real time by mashing the gas lol.
