Perhaps the point is that when the 820 puts out SDR/2020 it is not really SDR. It still has the BT.2020 color space and the HDR bit depth, but has been tone mapped to use a convenient SDR 2.4 gamma function and an appropriate nit level for your display, which may do have the ability to do more or less than 100 nits. Don't get hung up on the label SDR.
