Very rarely.

They are hardly usable within city. For instance, starting from standstill (traffic light) and immediately turning right, first gear is very short and you would of course need to shift up while your steering wheel is completely turned... hardly convenient or easy. It's better for me to use the shift stick into manual mode and turn the wheel with one hand. Could be different for gas engines since they need to shift less often.

Also, with a sports steering wheel the shift paddles block view to both stick controls (wiper and signaling/lights).
