It's not intuitive but its about the way the sensor handles information, and how you can use that information to push more detail into the shadows, in low light. Unless you read about it, you won't understand it and unless you try it, you won't believe it.

Shooting under dark conditions with moving subjects and unpredictable light, ETTR will often give me blurred shots and clipped highlights. That is why in dark conditions I ETTL, but that's just my shooting method.

ETTR is very useful for static subjects with a tripod and well thought metering.

As for adjustment in camera vs post it, RAW does not hold extra unseen pixels, it just doesn't suffer the JPEG suppression.

14bit vs 8bit makes a huge difference. Unless you try it, you won't believe it.
