With all working correctly, the only thing that your Closed Cooling System should undergo, would be coolant expansion from heat..... nothing else.
The expansion dumps the excess into the recovery reservoir.
If the coolant recovery system is working, at the end of the day, there should a zero sum gain.... meaning that as the engine cools down, any over-flowed coolant in the recovery reservoir will return to the H/E... and both levels should be the same as when you began.
