If you include White Balance settings in a preset applied to a Raw file, and apply that preset to a JPEG file, Lightroom tries to apply the equivalent white balance  adjustment (but using the JPEG scale). Therefore, the White Balance adjustment on a JPEG (using a preset based on a raw file) is necessarily an approximation.  We try to do the closest job we can, but results will vary somewhat on a case by case basis.

    I assume that when editing only RAW photos, this would not be an issue, correct? Only with the RAW to JPEG?

      Lightroom will have to guess if the preset was created with a different type of file (RAW to JPEG, JPEG to RAW).
