Default Questions about reading codes

I was wondering about reading codes on the EEC IV on my 1990 302.

I understand there are KOEO and KOER codes. But, will a code present in either of these turn on the CEL when the engine is running? Or is that only the KOER codes?

When I turn my key on (but not running the engine) my CEL comes on, and stays on. When the truck is running, the CEL is not on.

Should I bother checking for codes? Could something be there, but wouldn't be triggering the CEL when the engine is running?

The light is on by design when the key is on but not running. It tells you that the bulb works.

Thanks ... I wasn't sure if I was supposed to go out eventually with KOEO.
