My thought would definately be yes.  Beacuse most parts
are all in tolerance, and errors may cancel, but some
assemblies might have all high or all low tolerance and
the accumulation may be far enough off that you need the
pot to bring it in.

I'd say very... on some radios.  Maybe some radios dont need it,
bt others with lots of distortion generating intermod may need
it badly.  Best not to base a design on an assumed "good" radio
