It's usually the other way around, where white draws a crazy amount of power on OLED.
I don't think you understand how LG OLED's are designed. And part of the problem stems from the industry which has conflated "WRGB" with this different design, instead of simply signifying an ordering of subs and the addition of white.
The LG OLED colors come from filtering a dichromatic white (or trichromatic white----jury's still out on this one----it depends upon which Kodak patent you read) formed from a stack of OLED materials underneath. For any one of the subs to be active requires that the entire stack be emitting that composite white and a filter remove all but the needed color. In the case of the white sub, it's unclear if there's no filter at all or a carefully tuned one.
If you believe you can win an argument by stating that scientists "often" get things wrong, all you're doing is selectively ignoring the overwhelming legion of things they have gotten right. Viewed as an aggregate, scientists very very rarely get things wrong.
