Question about LR lens corrections

I'm a little uncomfortable with the LR lens corrections adjustment.  It definitely does something to the photo.  Kind of bulges out the middle and lightens it up a bit.  Nothing much but it changes it.

What I'm having trouble getting my head around is I'm using a D600 and various good lenses (primes, f2.8s).  How is it this near pro level camera and lens needs lens correction?  Does adobe know something Nikon doesn't about their lenses?

I watched some youtube tutorials on LR and at least one professional uses lens correction every time and it didn't seem like he used a customized profile but only the default LR one for that lens.

Could I get a little insight on this?  About half the time I think it may make the photo a little worse.  Of course I know your own eye is the best judge but I'm trying to figure out the underlying philosophy with LR's lens correction adjustments.
