How much of an engineer do you think a producer should be in a typical higher-budget session (one with a separate producer and engineer)?

Do think the producer should have his or her finger on signal flow every second of the session, or is that moreso for the engineer be concerned with the majority of the time? In a larger session that would seem like a LOT of switching from right to left brain. (beginning engineer/producer question, as you can probably tell).
