Most people who say things like that are using their camera's metering system, so they may think they are using manual exposure, but really they aren't. Of the settings you shoot, if you choose to make one a priority for any number of valid reasons, it really is not very different that setting all the settings manually, especially if you are using the cameras meter. Moving dials until the needle centers is hardly difficult.
