Is this like saying that 2+2=4 and four is kind of a small number. Maybe you like bigger numbers. You can have them, but the answer would be wrong.
On an LCD set, a calibrated image can have the backlight maxed out just like the vivid mode or any other mode. Whites simply are not blue tinted. But since our eyes see the blue whites better, we figure they have to be brighter as a result.
And of course the other modes like dynamic don't just give you a blue tint, they may also crank contrast way higher than it should be, You end up losing a lot of detail in the image, but if you didn't know that you were missing detail, you would not be missing it.
