If you don't, you're going to be unhappy when it comes time to share your work. It's the way Markdown ( which actually gets translated into HTML and then formatted into your final output format) works.
PS. I admire Mr. Hewson greatly, and bought his book. I tried to use Ulysses for novel writing, and came running back to Scrivener…

The output is entirely dependent on the export format you choose, of course, but a paragraph in Markdown XL is always a paragraph in the export. The look and format will be different of course, but the unit remains the same.
A couple of the included export formats are suitable for fiction manuscripts and it’s possible to amend them (it’s harder and far less flexible than Scrivenerj but if you’re happy with the defaults, Ulysses's process is simpler.

Ah, but I always use the external folder option, which eliminates Markdown XL. So a single return for me translates to a line break, not a paragraph break. As others have posted elsewhere, my fear and loathing of the unified iCloud library is vast. If I'm going to use a plain text format, I by heaven want access to my plain text files. In plain text, thank-you-very-much.
I agree with your comments about export. The difficulty of customising fiction export formats was the deal-breaker for me. OTOH, in working with my blog it's just a translation from Markdown to HTML, which Markdown is designed for. Markdown uploaded to blog, blog uses its formatting to display, all is well.
