Are colour profiles meant to be 'exact'

No.

or do they just help, and manual color corrections are to be expected afterwards?

Yes, unfortunately.

It helps if you use a "spectrally flat" light source, such as skylight, incandescent bulbs, and flash, which is close enough. You'll definitely have problems if fluorescent or LED bulbs are used.
