Nope, I didn’t plan for (or have) any extras.  However, there were 3 guests who weren’t able to make it due to last minute emergencies.  I followed-up with every missing RSVP, so it would have been highly unusual for people to just show up after saying they couldn’t make it.  Unless it is normal in your area or culture for more people to do that, I wouldn’t worry about having extra settings. (ETA – we did have extra chairs because we had a few tables/chairs set up for cocktail hour, but we didn’t need to use them during dinner)

I didn’t budget for extra seats (although we ended up with about 2 +1s that couldn’t make it). Our caterer, however, automatically brings extra food “just in case” and extra place settings. We had extra chairs since we didn’t want people to sit literally cheek-to-cheek during the ceremony and we had chairs for the cocktail hour tables.
