Not schooling you. You didn't seem to know EC doesn't do anything in M.

Well, it does change the metering in the camera, doesn't it?

It doesn't affect the actual exposure. For example if you have -auto ISO turned off- and take a shot at 1/60 f8 and then another with -3.0 EC set. they will have the same exposure. If auto ISO is being used, then EC in M mode does change the exposure and you are required to use EC just like in A or S mode to alter the exposure from the automatic metered setting as the ISO will change in relation to the meter and the EC that has been set.
