I know that when you open the RAW file it says one of the options for white balance is "As Shot." It may adjust the exposure some for you, but basically you can't shoot even in RAW without setting exposure properly.

The difference is that with RAW LR looks at the EXIF and, when rendering the RAW into the visible screen image, uses that WB as the "As Shot" starting point.  You can then set it at whatever temperature you like.  The RAW is still raw and has no WB.  With a jpg, the image is the WB that was set in the camera.

Some would have you believe that having to adapt to new technology is a workaround, but having adapted to old technology is photography.
