I have included below the AF Fine Tuning adjustments for the same lens on three different D800/E bodies. As you can see, the adjustment is a function of the camera and the lens, but the adjustments are mostly consistent in direction and magnitude which leads you to believe the lens makes the biggest difference.

I used FoCal to do my AF fine tuning. The data you see in the results graphs gives you confidence in the final setting because you can see the trend. Shown below is the final table with one body for my 50mm f/1.8 lens which is the one that resulted the most adjustment for a lens without a TC installed.
