Impossible Booking Question

As an EXP, and not withstanding that AA can book impossible backup flights for me during IRROPS, can I:
-Make impossible bookings that won't get scrubbed overnight?
-Make an impossible 24h hold that won't get scrubbed overnight? (one that overlaps with another ticketed flight of mine)

For some reason I recall that this is something that an EXP can do, and that the system is not supposed to overnight-scrub-autocancel an impossible booking.

One data point does not make a policy statement but...
I had two overlapping bookings last week and they did not get scrubbed. I am EXP

Ticketed or not ticketed? AA will not cancel impossible ticketed reservations/tickets, as far as I've always seen.

IME, they will not cancel duplicate bookings until fairly close to the flight date.

I don't think AA cancels impossible bookings that are ticketed. They only cancel impossible holds.

Thanks all for the data points. Seems they will keep impossible bookings, but not allow impossible holds.
