Default When does -18 DB matter

How important is it to keep your faders at -18 DB?

Much of this has to do with limits of headroom old analog gear and how the mixbus interacted but often people cite that many plugins are set up for -18 and that their response will be different if you don't provide it at that level.

How true is this and how are you supposed to know if a plug-in needs -18 because the bus certainly doesn't because Reaper doesn't care as it has more hHeadroom that anyone could possibly use?
