Default Dot Gain

I really need help here - there is a huge debate going on as to whether printers compensates for the dot gain he gets on his press by reducing the dot on his CTP plate or whether he runs a linear plate - which is 50% digital dot = 50% on the plate and accepts the dot gain
If printers are lurking around or any one can ask their printer what they do I would appreciate it
