As far as I can tell, the fuel cutoff solenoid prevents the truck from dieseling. Fuel can't drain into the cylinders unless you have bigger problems or unless you still have enough vacuum to pull fuel through the venturi. The intake manifold is already soaked with fuel when you turn it off so maybe that washes the cylinder walls but I doubt our tractor engines really care.
