As a practitioner I only want to know:
Is it correct that the RAW file is influenced by the WB preset?

The thesis seems to contradict an axiom of digital photography,
namely, RAW is independent of WB.

It's simple to prove for your particular camera. Just shoot a colour chart using RAW under tungsten illumination and daylight/tungsten WB settings then check if the reds block up on the daylight setting or shoot in daylight using tungsten light and daylight/tungsten WB settings and see if the blues block up on the tungsten setting

Be your own practitioner, don't trust quacks.
