Being an "RF type", I limit my connectors to a minimum.
I most certainly keep mine to a minimum, fortunately all of my runs a quite short so an extra barrel or two hasn't hurt.

Like most things in the install business, it varies depending on the specific situation.

Very rare cases when customer is stubborn and wants it his way which I consider irrational I just spend extra time and do it his way. No big deal.

Well, I only do installs for myself. But I do use wall plates and barrell connectors. I do not dispute the technical arguments against doing so, but in real life have never had a problem resulting from their use.
I also do self install, and also put a wall plate and barrel in. I move my tv from one wall to another from time to time, and having a wall connector allows me to use the correct length of cable inside. (6 ft vs 13 ft)

If people want to pay me more for wallplates I can always oblige.
