Is there any point in filling out the WP SEO "keywords" box?

If Googles ranking factors rely on it recognising the theme of a website from the structure - ideally categories in a SILO structure, and from the phrases in the website content, what should we put in the "keywords" section of each post on a WP blog? Should it be left blank?

I'm pretty sure Google stopped using the keywords meta tag a number of years ago, the only time I use it is when using Bing Ads, because they use it; along with other factors to determine landing page quality score.
