>> If this is the case, would all the data areas and work variables have to
be reinitialized?

This is true, but it's probably a small "price" compared with having to
re-invoke the program, open all the files, etc.  Not to mention the cost of
closing the files in the first place.

In general I always try to Return with LR off, and if any initialisation is
needed to do it myself.

One other comment - the cost differential is smaller with ILE programs since a
Return with LR on - while it closes the files etc. - only "pretends" to remove
the program from the activation, so it gets fired up faster on the next
invocation than an OPM program would.
