Is it mandatory for the Fellowship to enter the Mordor Track when the Fellowship is in Minas Morgul or Morannon?

Sooner or later during most games, the Fellowship should eventually reach wither the region of Morannon or Minas Morgul. It is mandatory that the Fellowship is in wither of these locations during a Fellowship Phase to begin the last part of the journey to Mount Doom (see The Fellowship in Mordor, page 43).

THE FELLOWSHIP IN MORDOR
. . .
If the Fellowship is in Minas Morgul or Morannon during a Fellowship Phase, the Free Peoples player may decide to enter Mordor.
I don't see this being an issue in most games, as the Free Peoples player will usually want to enter the Mordor Track, but could the Fellowship wait in
Mordor Minas Morgul or Morannon, or even leave Mordor Minas Morgul or Morannon, before entering the Mordor Track?
Edited for clarity.
