You wouldn't want the dang things popping in and out when you were near the deploy or retract transition.
I don't think that you could actually vary the airspeed that quickly, and I doubt they "pop", there is probably a fairly smooth transition. If you were to vary the airspeed/laminar flow that quickly you would want them deployed (high load stall, gusts etc),
