You are correct, if no changes other than additional plants are added an overdosed condition would be reduces as the new plants absorb the excess.

IF it is in overdose 50% w/c will cut the values in 1/2 at the time of the water changes that is basic chemistry. If the substrate is leaching that is another topic as the parameter will change until the next w/c.

Also unless top-offs are with distilled water parameters will changes based on the tap water's concentration of nutrients.
