Focal length confusion - actual or crop value

I just gave my 60D to my daughter and bought an EOS R with the 24-105mm.  I will likely want some new RF lenses,.  I have 5600+ photos in Lightroom , so I thought I would check how many photos were taken at each focal length.  So far so good.

Then I got to thinking - the 60D is a crop body (1.6 factor) and the EOS R is full frame.  So when I look at the LR results for 50mm, am I looking at 50mm or (x 1.6) 80mm.

I understand how to do the math, but the research I did on Google and several forums didn't address the real question I have - Should I interpret the focal length results as being a real XX or do I need to convert the list of focal lengths to the 1.6 equivalent to understand what I shot.

This becomes additionally important as I begin to add new EOS R full frame photos over time.
