My weight loss has been achieved mostly through exercise, not chronic calorie restriction, so calories burned during a workout do matter for me (typically 800-1200 cals).
I've never felt any need to eat more on days that I do exercise, hence I'm in a calorie deficit on active days, and a surfeit on relatively inactive days.
ETA: I don't use a tracker - I just ballpark and use intuition.
