My personal conclusion: It may be a good idea to go the preset or
manual balance way in rather extreme conditions. For normal
conditions I think adjusting WB for RAW shooting is not called for.
In camera that is.

And of course you're invited to draw your own conclusions here!

I think you are right in your assessment, and your conclusions are the same as mine. I think one can use either AWB or a fixed medium WB such as Sunny for normal conditions without much effect as the gain tags in the file will take care of whatever is happening to the pre-ADC gain for the data in the raw file.
