Yup. The park release is for the purpose of moving a disabled/dead vehicle onto a flatbed whereas the little neutral button below the terrain select dial is for putting the tcase into neutral for flat towing (wheels on ground), but you need power for that from what I can tell.

Never tried either and hope I don't need to...

Yes - I agree you really should not wish to use the park release - it's really just for emergencies. But for the tcase neutral, it's being used for recreational towing of the Jeep. Wouldn't you like winning the Lotto, quitting work, buying a $1M motorhome and towing your brand new JGC behind it? If you like it, then that's how you do it
