Is there any benefit for a Delphi or Free Pascal/Lazarus programmer to build a C DLL in debug mode ?

Could it and would it somehow lead to better debugging ?
If so how ? So far I don't notice any difference between debug or release build from within Delphi.

Maybe Release/Debug in this case/context only matters for those trying to debug the C DLL from inside Visual Studio ?!? Like attach to executable ? Or run with host application executable ? Such a feature... ?

Building Uber H3 Library can be done as follows:

Step 1: Use CMakeGUI to make build folder
Step 1.1: Select source folder, example:

Step 1.2: Select build folder, example:

Execute step 2 and step 3 in ms-dos command prompt from visual studio with special environment settings:

Step 2: Configure for DLL release:

cd E:\SourceCode\H3V4\

Step 3.1: Build release DLL

cd E:\SourceCode\H3V4-build\
cmake --build . --config Release


Step 3.2: Build debug DLL

cd E:\SourceCode\H3V4-build\
cmake --build . --config Debug
