It won't get much dust in that time. On the other hand, the cupboard shelf itself sits there collecting dust all the time, and I actually remove all the glasses and clean the shelves maybe once a year. So putting the glass upside down on the shelf causes a bunch of dust to adhere to the rim, and is thus worse if you're worried about drinking dust (which I'm not really, but I'd just as soon not).

The lip of the glass is touching the cupboard surface so it has to be in contact with something that hasn't been cleaned recently versus theoretical dust in an enclosed environment.
