I do nothing. Shotwell generates automatically them the first time each
photo is displayed. I have not seen configs to adjust the settings of
this conversion, but it is obvious that shotwell uses different choices
that my camera firmware uses.

Indeed!
And it sounds presumptive to me. At least your camera has setting as to
what algorithm - "scene" setting - to use. I doubt shotwell is smart
enough to say "Ah' a photo of a flower ..."

I just imported a RAW photo into Shotwell and it looks overexposed or
underexposed, why is this and how can I fix it?

Shotwell renders RAW images by picking some default tone mapping curves
that work in most cases, but not all. If you shoot RAW+JPEG or even just
plain RAW, your camera probably produces its own JPEG development of
your RAW photo at exposure time, either as an associated JPEG file (in
the RAW+JPEG case) or embedded in the RAW file itself (in the plain RAW)
case. Since your camera presumably knows more about its CCD and the
lighting conditions under which your photo was taken than Shotwell does,
it’s development will likely look better than Shotwell’s.

However
http://yorba.org/shotwell/help/other-raw.html
is misleading, inadequate and unfairly maligns other editors.

I use KDE's Kongueror and it can view my RAW files. I use Darktable
(which is actually gnomic in that it uses GTK rather than Qt) and it can
display RAW files without the need to convert them to JPG. Importing
RAW files into Darktable does *NOT* repeat *NOT* automatically create a
JPG. Shotwell is wrong about this being necessary.

When Darktable *does* generate a JPG or GIF it does it completely under
your control, as a result of the edits you've made, using a name format
you've chose, to a directory you've chosen.

Its *YOU* that makes the decision, not the program.
