Effects of stress on “flowering males”

Hey guys dont know what topic to pit this under.
Female plants will herm and try to pollinate themselves but what happens to male plants under the same circumstances, whats there equivalent?

Rasta Jeff from irie genetics stresses his males by switching from 12 12 to. 18 6 on a specific schedule so they finish a little faster but a healthy plant produces healthy seeds

Will light leaks bother them? What happens if it loses a great deal of biomass mid “flower”? Theres not nearly enough information on the male plant compared to its female counterpart in my opinion
