Holes Cement Prior Engineered Flooring Installation

After ripping out my carpets and the wood nailed to the slab there are many holes (most not too deep) in the cement. Should I fill these holes with some type of floor leveling compound prior to installation? Maybe it really doesn't matter? Thanks!

A picture might help.
If there just the tiny flaws where the carpet strip nails where the flooring will span those with no issues.

Not big enough to be an issue, but no harm in filling.

No need to fill in with engineered flooring. I would, as a caution, at least drag a putty knife over each hole. Sometimes the concrete nails holding the tack strips break off and leave an exposed point. Couple of good blows with a hammer to flatten them out.
