All of the above sounds right. If the lights are left off for too long you could slow any coraline growth but so will shading by bryopsis and derbasia. I would do what I could manually including scrubbing really bad rocks. I might even leave them out of the tank and in the sump for several days to deprive them of light. I don't think scrubbing it off in tank water harms the bacteria.
