In my Ascent, the cruise control will apply the brakes.
If it’s braking because of traffic, try setting the following distance higher before coming up on the traffic. It tends to not brake as hard that way.
I’m also curious if these brakes will last as long as previous vehicles. We’ll have to wait and see how they hold up for some of the higher mileage folks here. I’m at 18k but I know there are some in the 20’s and maybe even 30’s by now. I also hope the price for new pads comes down before I need them!

Yes, it certainly will ‘downshift’ when it can. And when that isn’t sufficient it applies the brakes as well.
Here in Virginia I drive thru tunnels a lot. On the downhill it almost never brakes, until the person in front of me stops
