1 Hour Zone 2 rides

Is there any benefit to these?
I’m reading so many conflicting opinions on these types of workouts from them being junk miles, not long enough to have any use, some say they increase your aerobic base, and several other opinions.

I’ve been following SSLV plan and was typically mixing in a weekend ride or a 40k gravel ride in addition to the 3 workouts. With us being on lockdown in Canada I’ve been adding in a couple zwift rides to break up the boredom of being home, sticking in Z2 throughout but only doing an hour. I’m purposely not going any harder to mess up my actual workouts.
These rides are a good mental break for me, but training wise are they useful at all?
