No, we usually don't although the information is potentially useful.
The problem is that in order to measure smallish incremental changes,
some 500 or so games need to be played before the statistics become
reliable. Obviously this requires a substantial amount of
computations, which is the main difficulty to overcome. At one time
Jerome Dumonteil did this kind of testing and the (now rather old)
results can still be found on the pages linked from the development
