Every so often, check your educated guess with realities. Be able to explain why your guess was wrong, if it's very wrong. Be able to explain why your guesses are always wrong the same direction, and fix it if it is fixable.
I agree with what you say. But because these estimates are used as the foundation for the craziest things, it can go sideways real fast.

Yes.
Keep track of your true estimates, let someone else dig their grave. And notify pricing.
