Engine braking and EGT's

After reading the stories of full catalysts, I got to thinking.....Would running the engine brake feature assist in raising the EGT's to help burn off some of it to ash? Sorry if this is a dumb question....Learning as I go.:shrug:

In the manual it mentions the Exhaust brake aiding in cold weather warm up times, so it is a possibility.
