That's not tracking. That's just normal scent perception.

It's how odors work regardless of how you interpret them.
Air currents can concentrate just as easily as break up scents too.
They may not make it easier to track per se but will allow an increase in "volume" and therefore more information. That could be necessary to know where to go to continue tracking.
