suspension settings for dirt?

Total newb question... but here goes anyway.

I've been researching a bit and quickly finding that any topic on suspension quickly becomes a rabbit hole of technical information. I am trying to fully understand it all, I would like to get to the point where I can be very calculated in my suspension setup, but I'm still learning this bike and it's capabilities, while trying to have some fun.

I've been going by the manual and tuning the suspension for all three recommended settings, comfort, standard and sport (full load out). So I'm getting the feel for each... What I'm wondering is what are the best settings are for dirt?

Can I just set it to "comfort" and that will give me the most play and control for off-road? Or do I want something stiffer like the standard setting?
