When shooting raw files, the picture control settings are just extra data fields in the NEF file, unlike JPGs. Nikon's software will initially honor the settings in the display of the picture while everyone else ignores them.

What might be more helpful to you is to figure out which picture control most closely matches what you will do in post-processing. That way the LCD and histogram will give you a better indication of potential problems later.
