Default Question for mini split users

I just had a 5 head, 48000btu, heat pump install and I noticed that some of the heads keep throwing heat even though the room has reached the temperature setting. We have a 3-bedroom Cape, and the two bedrooms upstairs aren't being used so I have those heads turned off. The one in the basement is set at 60 degrees but the thermometer reads 68 degrees and it's still putting out heat.
My tech told me that if I don't have all the heads on, excess heat could be released through the other smaller heads. I just figured I'm saving electricity by not heating these two rooms that aren't being used. Has anyone experienced this?
This is all new to me, still playing around with it, trying to figure out the best temperature settings on all the heads. So today I have them all on but set the 3 smaller 6000btu heads at minimum temperature, which is 60 degrees.
