Yes. Waveforms displays are completely useless for normal
audio engineering. You may need them for technical purposes,
when doing maintenance or testing. But there it ends.
Interesting properties are peak level, RMS level, spectrum,
etc. and their short term history.
A waveform just contains too much information that is in
almost all cases irrelevant. It's easy to find waveforms
that look completely different but sound just the same.
Or some that look almost the same but sound very different.
