Does a beers final gravity play into account when calculating sugar and carbonation volumes when bottle carbonating?

I have a beer mashed at 152F that finished fermentation at 1.013 after 3 weeks. I sat it on some oak for about 2 months. I want to add some CBC1 yeast and priming sugar to bottle when carbonating. Do I take into account the 1.013 when trying to figure out how much sugar to add to get to the right volume of CO2 or doesn't it matter? I haven't used CBC1 before so and I have never thought about the final gravity in therms of adding carbonation but I don't want to make some bottle bombs.

No, the remaining sugars are remaining because they are unfermentable for brewing yeast. Meaning also your botteling yeast is very unlikely to be able to chew on those.
