Does Lightroom show the exact white balance a photo was shot at in Kelvin?

I know the slider is on the top to adjust, but where can I find the exact numeric Kelvin number?

NVM, I found it.  It didn't show in the photos I changed, but it was in the original.  Strange.

If you shot in RAW, Stacy, the file format has no colour space.
Any Raw converter will read from the file only the data the ca-
mera recorded and will render a preview.

To be efficient, set up Auto WB in the camera where, prior to SR,
a white card will be sampled if needed so. Converters will not ma-
ke any decisions by themselves.

My converter always tell me the actual K a file was recorded with
but — its been so long — I don't remember if Lr does.

Light is free… capturing it is not!
