Any update on this? I don't have a license for CO, but still considering buying one (so I can't open a support case) and I also have problems with D7000 profile...

You can open a support case, fill in 'trial' in the license field.

Whitebalance cannot be "matched" in LR. The WB depends on the matrix part of the colour correction (the camera colour profile) and the base linearity of the camera's raw channels.

A camera is not an accurate spectrograph, but more like a colorimeter. Depending on the filters in the camera, and the amount of correction you apply, the (theoretical) WB value that gives the exact same WB in the shots will vary.

If you match the WhiBal "per camera" you will get different temperatures. Change camera calibration from "Adobe Standard" to Camera Standard, and you will also get a change in absolute WB. It's all in the postprocessing. What you see as a finished result on screen is NOT what the camera measured, but a very processed version mybkexperience.
