In other words, you can fine tune a WB preset (making it warmer/colder, to your liking). It's OK to set it On, if you don't think the presets are perfect and you'll never change them.

That's not how I understand it, and that's not how, in my experience, it behaves in practice either. I have that set to "Off" and I can still fine-tune the WB presets.

When set to "On", this actually makes the camera automatically fine-tune the WB even when a preset is selected. Sort of a mini-AWB around the chosen preset, if you will.
