At the instigation of a short course tutor, I have recently changed the in-camera WB setting from Auto where I always had it first to 'Daylight' (=5200K) then to 5600K + fine tune + amber & magenta, ie pre-empting & mimicking what I often found myself doing in PP. I am not sure if this helping to record light more correctly or manufacturing idealised light???
NB this may not make any difference in CS, as ACR ignores half of the .nef content anyway, but using Nikon PP software, every pre-set made on the camera comes through as set when in the 'raw' editing stage of PP and can then be changed as usual or just turned off altogether. In the latter case I am not sure if my setting would over-ride an auto setting or revert to auto.
Canon DPP has similar adjustments in the raw pane, and imagine similar WB setting can be made on the camera as the said tutor was a canoneer
