I did that once by accident on my CRV. I didn't notice if the mileage recorded but what did happen was the wheels locked up when the Brake Buddy engaged. With the key in the ON position the power steering pump is running and that also powers the brakes. The Brake Buddy was getting power assisted brakes which it wasn't expecting.
