Regarding darktable: they rebalance the colour temperature to 5000K to
get a propper offset handling. If you have 3200K set from your camera
darktable recalculates it to 5000K wheras the values you can see for the
channels are the same as for ufraw.

As I don't use digikams raw tool (darktable only) I can not help you there.
