if dynamic contrast makes blacks darker, you likely have brightness set too high.
the 'black' should be the same regardless of 'features'. dynamic contrast will crush details above black, so if you're brightness is too high, it might 'crush' your too bright black back to correct black. but the real solution is to set brightness correctly so that 16 doesn't flash on the test pattern.
just a thought
