It has to do with the particular camera.

If the designers of the camera choose to do so, they can make the viewfinder show you the "raw" meter reading.  If they choose to do so, they can make the viewfinder show you an "adjusted" meter reading that takes the exposure compensation setting into account.

Either way, if you are in M mode, and working with a fixed ISO, the EC control would have no direct effect upon exposure/lightness.

It might have an indirect effect, if you were working to the meter reading.
