Climate Control vs. Sport Mode vs. Green Mode?

I've never been convinced that my air cond blows as cold as I think it should. Today it occurred to me that the on/off of the compressor might vary among the driving modes. For example, I could see shutting off the compressor if full engine power was called for in Sport Mode. Or to save gas in Green Mode.

Any thoughts as to modes shutting off the a/c compressor?

From the owners manual;

The GREEN mode supports a driving style thatsaves on fuel consumption. For this purpose,
the engine control and comfort features, e. g.the climate control output, are adjusted.
GREEN climate control
"GREEN climate control"
Climate control is set to be fuel-efficient. By making a slight change to the set temperature,
or adjusting the rate of heating or cooling of the car's interior fuel consumption can be
economized. The outputs of the seat heater and the exterior Additionally heat output to seats and exterior mirror is reduced.
