Default Ride it out?

I have a Belgian Dubbel I made about 10 days ago. Checked last night and it's at my expected FG.

How long past ferm should I plan to let it sit on the yeast? My plan was 4 weeks total. Good, bad?

That sounds pretty solid to me, probably about the length of time I'd do myself. Let the yeast clean up after itself.
Tried to keep up with this signature, but just couldn't.

I stopped doing interim SG readings about a year ago. 4 weeks primary, 4 weeks bottle conditioning and 5-7 days in the fridge. No bottle bombs, and no batches that failed to reach the expected FG range.
