We investigate outer symmetries on unital Kirchberg algebras with respect to the Rokhlin property and finite Rokhlin dimension. In stark contrast to the restrictiveness of the Rokhlin property, every such action has Rokhlin dimension at most one. A consequence of these observations is a relationship between the nuclear dimension of an $\mathcal O_\infty$-absorbing C*-algebra and its $\mathcal O_2$-stabilization. We also give a more direct and alternative approach to this result. Several applications of this relationship are discussed to cover a fairly large class of $\mathcal O_\infty$-absorbing C*-algebras that turn out to have finite nuclear dimension.

Keywords: Kirchberg algebra, nuclear dimension, Rokhlin dimension
