Some devs do pay attention to the votes sometimes.

Like you say, it can be a useful tool to know what people are interested in. It can be useful when searching for bugs, as sometimes the ones you want are the "popular" ones. It's used by several of the change-tracking lists to flag up "interesting" bugs.

But votes don't directly make any difference - developer time isn't allocated according to which bugs have most votes or anything like that. It's just an indicator of what bugzilla users are interested in.
