Does that make sense?

No sense at all. Picture controls are for JPG. If you shoot RAW, then why bother?

I don't quite get your response at all. I shoot nothing but raw and edit everything in post.  I bother using a flat picture control in camera so I have a better indicator of my exposure on the right side of the histogram.

Using a flat picture control allows me have a much better idea of when I'm overexposing and when I'm not.  If I were to use a Vivid picture control in camera then my LCD, blinkies, and histogram would all show blown highlights well before I've actually blown them out.
