You sure pilots "understand" more than button presses? From November 2022 AAIB, 737 crew and here we are talking engine thrust settings in terms of "feel".
That sounds like an item for pre-take-off roll checks. He had an exception (brakes did not hold at 70% thrust run up check and aircraft started moving ... so his all procedure went bye bye and he put all his passengers and himself at high risk and he lacked the skill and feel to see something was not happening right and correct it before leaving the ground)

There was a terrible fatal accident of an airliner (regional) over Buffalo, NY where the captain could not recognize the airliner was in a stall. Basic stick and rudder stuff. Instead, he went from 10,000 feet all the way to the crash in a stall. You have to have procedures but also have the skill and feel and have the understanding when to apply what procedure or when to use what.
