Don't fret yourself over this. If you're really concerned, turn it over by hand a dozen times or so, just grab the front of the clutch and turn it in the normal direction of rotation. Then start the engine and let it warm up so it's not on fast idle and turn on the A/C. It doesn't make any difference whether it's on Max or Norm. The A-6 compressor has an actual little oil pump in the rear cover with a pickup going down into the sump on the bottom. If you want to be good to it, just run it for a minute or two every couple weeks. This is really not a big issue, IMO. The split-second clutch activation while passing through A/C to Heat doesn't run it long enough to help anything, IMO.

If you want to do your A/C a favor, make sure your fan clutch is good before next summer.

In case you're wondering, I do custom and antique A/C work in Phoenix, Az.
