During a bulk... Is there advantages/good reasons to tracking your fat and carbs? Would just tracking protein and calories be sufficent? Any ideas here?

Protein and fats minimum, cut, maintain, or bulk. Adjust the rest of the calories depending on goals, and take it from whatever you want, carbs, fats or protein.

Yes bulk, but technically you can do 300g protein 500g carbs 0g fat and that would probably be bulking macros @ 3200 cals, but no fats would be bad.

Tracking protein and calories themselves will not be sufficient for an optimal bulk and optimal health concerns.

Other factors are needed to be considered:
- Dietary Fat: Regulating hormones & testosterone, joint health, overall health and wellness
- Fiber: Overall health and avoid constipation
- Micronutrients/Vitamins: Overall health
- Carbohydrate: Many perform better with CHO intake, but some swear by Keto based diets, this is all up to you but I cannot live a day without rice

Just make sure your getting you minimum fats, protein and micros. Not much point in trying to hit exact carb/fat numbers whilst bulking.
