It's one thing to do a single static element at 4K/8K (with not a lot of polygons or hi-res texturing). It's a whole other ballgame to do feature film VFX at that, and today the vast majority are...

It's not an upmix per se, they just clone the surround L&R channels to the rear channels. No processing going on, just duplication.
