I've a 6D with lens profile information for all my lenses. So when I process pictures from the camera in Lightroom do I need to set the lens profile option?

Are you working with RAW or JPEG? RAW will not use the in-camera correction but JPEG will.

I shoot RAW. I didn't know RAW does not use in-camera correction. – Vivek Feb 5 '14 at 15:21
@Vivek - RAW data is just the values from each sensor. There isn't even color or pixel information associated yet so there wouldn't be a particularly clean way to apply the correction since it would also impact the way that the colors had to be determined. – AJ Henderson Feb 5 '14 at 15:25
Thank you, That does makes sense. – Vivek Feb 5 '14 at 15:30

If you shoot raw then YES you will need to use the lens profile option in Lightroom.
