I don't think your premise is true. If you are shooting raw, for example, then you have to make a judgment of what white balance/temperature/etc to choose. The camera may have recorded its take on it, and that may drive what pops up in the raw converter if you choose "As Shot", but that is just an estimate, it may be a very good one ,but it is not authoritative. If you want to know exactly what was seen, you need to use a gray card.
